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 recently announced the recipients of Circle N Markets High School Concurrent Enrollment Grants. Currently in its fourth year, the grant was established to provide assistance for high school students who wish to earn college credit at EACC prior to graduation.
The program provides funding directly to area high schools where Circle N Markets are located in eastern Arkansas- St. Francis, Cross, Lee, Poinsett, and Monroe counties. The grant enables students in high school who wish to earn college credit from EACC prior to graduation. The grant is used to offset the cost of books.
“If a student has applied for the EACC Concurrent Enrollment Program through their high school and has been accepted, they may benefit from the Circle N Grant Funds. The grant assists area high schools by helping to offset the costs of books used for the concurrent classes,” said Niki Jones, EACC Director of Development. “This year, EACC’s concurrent program has served over 225 students throughout the College’s service region.”
The Circle N Market Grant program has been funded by Mallory and Carla Nimocks, who believe in the value of higher education. A prior scholarship program was in effect through Nimocks Oil Company, also providing scholarships to concurrently enrolled students. “This is the tenth year Nimocks Oil Company has been able to provide additional funding for concurrent students, contributing $45,000 dollars through the years towards helping high school students in our region achieve academic success,” said Carla Nimocks. “Given the academic high school challenges of today, especially in the delta, we see the concurrent enrollment grant as a great opportunity for youth in our area.” The Nimocks family looks forward to continuing to assist and support EACC’s educational programming as the college outreaches to high school students in the communities served by Circle N Markets.
“We appreciate the continued generosity and support by the Nimocks family and the Circle N Markets,” said Niki Jones. “EACC is a leader in providing educational opportunities for high school students in eastern Arkansas through the College’s concurrent enrollment program. The Circle N Markets have assisted in providing a great way for students to enhance their learning experience during high school while working toward a college degree, and this grant enhances EACC’s ability to fulfill its mission to area students.”
