Most scholarships available today to CPCC students are based on financial need, according to Brenda Lea, executive director of development at CPCC. Officials say several thousand students drop out of classes each year because they can't afford to continue their education. While the scholarships provided by individuals and groups like the Mint Hill Women's Club have brought the number of students dropping out due to financial need down there still is a large need, she said. "Even though we have a number of groups who do this, we have thousands of students who cannot attend because they have financial need," Lea said. CPCC sophomore Shaneé Colon, 29, never expected to be contacted for the scholarship, even after filling out her information on the school's scholarship database. While Colon didn't know anything about the club, she did research and is honored to be a scholarship recipient this year, she said. "When I sat down with them I was just amazed and thankful that I was able to meet them," she said. Colon, an Army veteran who served in South Korea, needed additional money for tuition in order to continue her studies. She hopes to make the women who gave her the scholarship proud in all that she is doing at CPCC. She hasn't yet chosen a major. "I really have the highest gratitude toward them for sitting down with me. They were very nice to me and very in tune with what I was talking about," she said.

"We aren't there yet."
To honor the donors, CPCC will rename the South Campus, near Independence Boulevard and Interstate 485, Levine Campus in an 11 a.m. ceremony Nov. 1.
The renaming will coincide with the groundbreaking for a second building that will more than double the 220,000 square feet of classroom, laboratory and office space there.
