Donating to the Phillips Community College Foundation can have a lasting impact on future generations of college students long into the future.
Recognizing the generous people who give in order to give others a step up is the reason behind the annual Scholarship Luncheon at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas. Hearing Phillips College students tell of the personal struggles they have faced and the goals they have been able to accomplish because of the generosity of scholarship donors is very humbling.

Recognizing the generous people who give in order to give others a step up is the reason behind the annual Scholarship Luncheon at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas.

During the spring luncheon, John King Jr. Nursing Scholarship recipient Crystal Redd said graduating from college was always in her plans, however, the demands of family always took precedence. When she got the opportunity to return to college two years ago, Redd took it. As if the demands of the nursing program aren't challenging enough, Redd's granddaughter was hospitalized, and, then, her son was critically injured in an accident. But, with the support of family, PCCUA instructors, fellow students, and contributors Ann and John King, Jr., she is accomplishing her dream of becoming a nurse. She expressed her sincere appreciativeness saying, “I am so proud I am a member of Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas. The good Lord is not going to give you a hill you can't climb, and I am bound and determined I am going to climb mine!”
PCCUA Chancellor Dr. Keith Pinchback urged recipients to give back to the community, adding, “We are all in this together.” He also thanked the donors for the importance of helping educate future businessmen, hair stylists, medical personnel, and others, noting, “These people might save your life one day!”
Stressing the importance of a college education, Rhonda St. Columbia, PCCUA vice chancellor for college advancement, noted, “Being in college is not always easy, but with a college degree, our graduates make a lot more money, will have increased opportunities, and will be more marketable in the workforce.”
