The Route 70 Cruisers, a local car club based in Old Fort, recently provided McDowell Technical Community College with a $1,000 donation to be used for scholarships to needy students in Automotive Systems Technology.

The Route 70 Cruisers Scholarships will be available to students in Automotive Systems Technology who have financial need and a strong desire to pursue a career in the automotive industry. McDowell County residents are preferred.

"We really appreciate the commitment Route 70 Cruisers has made to students in our Automotive Systems Program over the last several years," said Cross. "Their gifts have allowed many of these students to continue their studies when they couldn't otherwise afford to do so."

For additional scholarship criteria and applications, contact the Financial Aid Office in the Cedar Building on the main campus.
