WKU and National City PNC have announced the four recipients of the National City PNC Harman and Potter Incentive Scholarships for 2009.
The four-year renewable tuition scholarships are designated for a graduating senior in each of the four high schools in Bowling Green and Warren County. The scholarships were first awarded in the fall of 1986.
“You students represent the very best coming from these four high schools and we’re proud to present these scholarships made possible through our partnership with National City PNC,” WKU President Gary Ransdell said. “We cannot provide these kinds of scholarships by ourselves, but together with partners like National City PNC we can make wonderful things happen in this community.”
Marvin Stratton, community president for National City PNC, congratulated the students as well as their family members and school officials. “We are truly excited to be a part of this and to see you have this great opportunity,” he said. “National City PNC is fortunate to be a part of this partnership with WKU.”
Alex Downing, president of the College Heights Foundation, said National City PNC has provided more than $2.2 million in scholarships for deserving students at WKU. “On behalf of the College Heights Foundation, I want to express our gratitude to National City PNC,” he said.
