Two students from among this year’s GED graduates will receive $1,000 scholarships to continue their studies at NorthWest Arkansas Community College.

This year’s scholarship winners were Jesus Alvarez Garcia of Springdale, who plans to major in industrial engineering, and Adam Foster of Bentonville, who plans to major in culinary arts.

NWACC held its annual Adult Education graduation ceremony on May 17 at the Arend Arts Center in Bentonville. The Adult Education Program celebrated a record year as 566 adults passed the GED test and earned the Arkansas High School Diploma.  One hundred and twenty-two adults participated in the May 17 ceremony.

NWACC awards each GED graduate one free three-hour credit class and selects two students to receive $1,000 scholarships for the coming school year.
