Kettering College students, faculty, alumni and staff have been working behind the scenes to support federal legislation that would protect funding for nursing schools nationwide. Their grassroots efforts are paying off—as of March 3, legislators from both sides of the aisle have introduced related bills in the United States Senate and House of Representatives.

Gail Melkersen, one of the promoters of the Virginia Scholarships Tax Credits program, recently met with Shenandoah Valley Academy (SVA) and Shenandoah Valley Adventist Elementary (SVAE) students to present checks totaling $22,064. Seven SVA students received scholarships totaling $15,164: six SVAE students received $6,900.

Kettering College has been selected out of nearly 8,000 postsecondary schools as the recipient of a Best Value School award for the second consecutive year. The award is issued by University Research & Review, a company dedicated to improving the process of how a student selects a postsecondary school.
