On Monday, March 19, 21 students were awarded a fall scholarship from the Moberly Area Community College New Traditions Committee. The New Traditions goal is to help members of special populations select, enter, and complete career and technical educational training programs.

Brittany Rice, of Hannibal, received the Family & Community Education Scholarship. Rice is obtaining an Associate of Applied Science Early Childhood Education degree.

New Traditions is designed to assist people who are facing economic or personal challenges and need skills training in order to better support themselves and/or their families. The committee's primary purpose is to help individuals plan careers that offer more job security, higher wages, and more successful employment outcomes.

Career counseling, assessment and support services are available through the New Traditions Program. Job Placement assistance is tailored to MACC students in Career and Technical programs and MACC alumni.
