EACC’s faculty and staff is committed to providing students of all ages and stages of life access to high quality and affordable academic, technical and non-credit education.
EACC has announced Aldo Eduardo Mora-Delgado of Forrest City, Arkansas, as the winner of the 2016 Academic All-Star Scholarship award. Mora-Delgado was recognized at the recent Arkansas Community Colleges annual conference in Hot Springs along with 21 other student scholarship winners from the other community colleges around the state.
The Academic All-Star Scholarship is designed to award excellence in academics and leadership at the community college level. Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of not less than 3.25 and possess a minimum of 12 credit hours in pursuit of an associate degree. Each of the twenty-two community colleges in Arkansas grants one All-Star Scholarship to one student per year.
Mora-Delgado has been active as an EACC student ambassador and a participant in the Student Support Services program at East Arkansas Community College. He was also selected to attend Arkansas Community Colleges’ Student Leadership conference last Spring. Born in Mexico with English as a second language, his persistence and dedication to accomplishing his goals have helped him excel in his studies. After graduating from EACC, Mora-Delgado plans to attend the University of Arkansas to pursue a degree in Architecture.
“Aldo is a very determined student, and I believe he will accomplish his goals because he has overcome so many barriers with flying colors,” said instructor Jo Patterson. “He is determined to make the most of his opportunities so he will be prepared for anything he wants to pursue,” she added.
Dr. Maria Markham, Director of Arkansas Department of Higher Education, presented the keynote address during the annual Academic All-Star Awards Brunch at the conference. In addition to the $500 award the All-Stars received, a second full-tuition scholarship was offered by several Arkansas four-year universities to aid the recipients in completing their bachelor’s degree.
