Kent Rose Foundation, Inc. Scholarship Established at 
Big Sandy Community & Technical Colleg

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. – Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) President/CEO Dr. Sherry Zylka finalized an agreement on February 8, 2018 with the Kent Rose Foundation, Inc. to establish the Kent Rose Foundation, Inc. Scholarship.

Kent Rose, a Prestonsburg native, passed away from lung cancer in 2016. The Kent Rose Foundation, Inc. was later established by his wife Gina Rose. The foundation is carrying on Kent’s vision of helping students achieve their goals by providing community college scholarships.

“We are overwhelmed with emotion today as we sign the agreement with Dr. Zylka in partnering with Big Sandy Community & Technical College to establish the Kent Rose Foundation Automotive Technology Scholarship. This scholarship has been years in the making.” said Rose. “We are so thankful for the support we have had on the journey here and look forward to continued growth as, together, we change lives.”

The scholarship will be awarded to an incoming high school student pursuing an Associate of Science degree in Automotive Technology that has demonstrated the need for financial assistance. The scholarship can be renewed for a second year if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA. BSCTC is accepting Scholarship Applications now through April 1st.

“We are thankful for our community partners like the Kent Rose Foundation, Inc. who continue to help us provide educational opportunities to students in our area who may not have had them otherwise.” said Dr. Zylka.

It's all about the KIDZ...!
