Meet two ICC (Polk Campus) Foundation New Century Scholars

As stated earlier, each of the students has a mentor who spends time guiding and listening to the student.

One mentor is Barney Eiserloh who works with the juniors in the New Century Scholars program.

“Being a mentor for these students has been a great educational experience for me, and I hope, for them. I understand much more the complexities of maturing, coping and adjusting in this rapidly changing world, compared to my own experience in school,” Eiserloh said. “I also appreciate our schools that continually strive to provide the right learning atmosphere. But the greatest joy is witnessing the students’ transformation toward adulthood by some magical catalyst.”

Would you like to be part of a county-wide effort to guarantee selected students the mentoring and financial assistance they need so they can attend Isothermal Community College and be successful there?

The Polk County Campus ICC Foundation invites you to support its New Century Scholars Fund. Contributions may be made payable to PCC ICC Foundation and mailed to 1255 W. Mills Street, Columbus, N.C. 28722.

Contributions may also be made directly to The New Century Scholars Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. All contributions are tax deductible.
