Nunez Community College in Chalmette is welcoming incoming freshmen to the Fall 2022 semester with a $500 scholarship.

The ‘Take Flight’ and ‘We Give A Hoot About You’ Scholarships each offer $500 to students who graduated from high school in 2022. ‘Take Flight’ is available to any 2022 high school graduate currently residing in Louisiana, while ‘Give A Hoot’ is specifically for 2022 graduates of Chalmette High School.

Dr. Cherie Kay LaRocca, Vice Chancellor for Education Training and Student Success, said that the new scholarships are a great incentive for 2022 high school graduates. 

"Students entering college for the first time in the fall are already dealing with enough stress. These scholarships are a way for us to make their transition to higher education a little easier,” said Dr. LaRocca.

Nunez Teaching: Grades 1-5 major Katie Mahler said that the ‘Give a Hoot’ Scholarship was a major help when she began at Nunez in 2020.
