COLUMBIA STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
The Brentwood/Franklin Woman’s Service Club recently added $2,500 to their endowment through the Columbia State Community College Foundation.
“Our Club is aware of the need to provide quality education for new and returning students and our Veterans throughout the Middle Tennessee area,” said Paula Uhlir, Brentwood/Franklin Woman’s Service Club education chair. “We are also aware that Columbia State provides that opportunity. As part of a national organization that was founded in 1890 we cherish the opportunity to continue funding our endowment providing scholarships for Columbia State students.”
The Brentwood/Franklin Woman’s Service Club raised the funding for the addition through its “Step-Up, It’s A Charity Affair” luncheon and silent auction, and Christmas raffle.
Columbia State is a two-year college, serving a nine-county area in southern Middle Tennessee with locations in Columbia, Franklin, Lawrenceburg, Lewisburg and Clifton.
The Columbia State Foundation encourages community partnerships such as this one for scholarships and program support that positively impact student success.
