The Lebanon campus needs your assistance to provide scholarship dollars to those students who fall into the following categories:
Students who do not qualify for Pell Grants - These students come from middle-class families who make too much money to qualify, but not enough to pay for college.
Students who do not qualify for loans - Many Lebanon campus students are working and balancing family needs while going to college. Students whose schedules allow for only one class (three credits) at a time do not qualify for student loans, adding financial stress to an already difficult situation.
Students who have used most or all of their financial aid on remedial courses - These students often deplete scholarship and loan monies before they can complete their certificate, diploma or degree program.
Please consider supporting these Lebanon Campus students who, without your generosity, may not be able to afford to continue their education. In the 2012-2013 academic year, more than 1,200 students were enrolled at the HACC Lebanon Campus. Only 196 students, 16.2 percent, received scholarship aid to help offset the cost of their education.
Fundraising Goal: $50,000
Technology, Equipment and Facilities
A critical component of providing high-quality education is ensuring that our students are using the latest technology, equipment and facilities.
- Replacement/upgrade of LCD projectors and audio equipment - Eight classrooms at the Lebanon Campus have audio and projection equipment that is outdated or failing. Upgrading this classroom technology ensures that our instructors are using the best delivery methods and providing the most effective education for our students. The approximate cost per classroom is $5,625. Our goal is $45,000.
- Replacement of models, slides and equipment for biology lab - Biology instructor Dr. Heidi Devlin combines theory of instruction with her real-world experience as a researcher at Hershey Medical Center. However, the equipment she is using hinders the delivery of this information. The models, slides and equipment are out of date and in disrepair. Replacing these items will enhance instruction in a course that is part of the highly sought-after STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. Our goal is $10,000.
- Expansion of security camera on second and third floors of Dixon Hall - One of the most important features of taking classes at HACC's Lebanon Campus is the security provided at Dixon Hall. HACC's Office of Safety and Security would like to enhance the security provided to our students by placing additional cameras on the second and third floors to eliminate any blind spots or areas not covered by our existing camera system. This will improve the educational environment for students, faculty and staff. Our goal is $4,000. Update the scholarship goal to $50,000
