Megan Beck, a Tuckasegee resident who is enrolled in Southwestern’s Radiography program, recently received a scholarship through the SCC Foundation.
As most of us are excited and preparing for cold weather, hot chocolate and quality time with our families, we’re also starting to think about what gifts we would like to give to one another this season. 

This year, please consider giving one of the greatest gifts of all: opportunity.

With AmazonSmile, 0.5% of every purchase you make for your friends and family will be donated directly to the SCC Foundation to be used for student scholarships.

Start by visiting If you are an existing Amazon customer, use your usual log-in information. Once you are logged in, AmazonSmile will ask you to "Select a Charitable Organization to Start Shopping.” Scroll to the field that allows you to pick your own charitable organization, and type in “Southwestern Community College Foundation”. Be sure to choose the one in Sylva, and then you can start shopping.

Celebrate this season by giving the gifts of education, change and opportunity. It won’t cost you a single additional penny beyond your normal spending, and it will make all the difference in our students’ lives.
