Photos and Story by James Hill
The Carmen Martinez Memorial Science/Service-Learning Scholarship has been established at the PCC Foundation and will award one $700 scholarship to a deserving student. Requirements include: to be a Rock Creek Campus student; possess a 2.5 grade-point average; have completed 24 credits at PCC; completed at least one PCC science course and at least one PCC service-learning course (these could be the same course); and preference will be given to women students returning to college. Applications are due Friday, Nov. 6. The application process is detailed at the PCC Foundation Web site.
Staff, faculty and the community are encouraged to donate to this scholarship to help more students in the future. To donate, visit the PCC Foundation’s Giving Web site. Martinez, the late chemistry instructor at Rock Creek Campus, was committed to service learning and was excited to have this scholarship be part of her legacy at PCC.
