The Gallery at Three Rivers recently held the Annual Student Art Show, which featured the work of Three Rivers students who took an art class this academic year. The show ran from May 5-22.

Dear Colleagues, 
We're at the end of another successful academic year. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students who are studying so conscientiously to earn an education. Together we've accomplished so much and graduated over 500 students.

I hope you will take time this summer to rest, relax and rejuvenate yourselves for the fall semester!

With best wishes, 

Mary Ellen

Foundation Awards Record Number of Scholarships
Proud families of Three Rivers Community College students filled the room on Wednesday, May 3, when the Three Rivers College Foundation held the annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony.
Generous contributions led to a record-breaking number of scholarships, which were awarded to 206 students. The total sponsorships  awarded came to just over $400,000, which is a 23% increase over last year. This includes $51,000 awarded in a pilot initiative of summer scholarships, which have never been granted before. Many students have exhausted their financial aid and cannot afford summer courses, so the summer scholarships helps expedite their path to graduation.  Read more.
