AMY DOUGLAS SELECTED FOR MARTIN SCHOLAR SPOTLIGHT

The Muhlenberg County Campus of Madisonville Community College is proud to announce the selection of Amy Douglas as this week s Martin Scholar Spotlight. Douglas, of Central City, is a 2012 graduate of Madisonville Community College (MCC), receiving her Associate of Arts degree. She was a Martin Scholar and continues to be a strong advocate of the program.

Douglas shared, When I stopped taking classes, I only needed one more class to graduate. With the scholarship and bonus from Martin Scholars, I was out nothing financially for the degree that I had always wanted to complete. In December 2012, I graduated with an Associate of Arts degree from MCC. I was finally able to say I graduated!

To be eligible for Martin Scholars, students must be full-time residents of Muhlenberg County, age 25 and older, who have yet to earn a college degree but have successfully completed at least 30 credit hours of regionally accredited college level coursework. Students accepted in the program will receive a $250 cash stipend each semester he/she is enrolled at MCC and makes satisfactory progress toward a degree. Satisfactory progress is shown by a signed form from the professor verifying that the student has at least a C average at the midpoint of the class. Satisfactory progress must be verified in all classes taken during the semester before a check will be mailed directly to the student. Additionally, each qualified student who completes his/her Associate Degree at MCC will receive an additional $400 Completion Bonus. The check will also come directly to the student. Martin Scholar funds can be used to offset any costs a student encounters, including books, supplies, equipment, transportation or child-care.
