Joy Grande, sponsor of the Jeffrey P. Grande Memorial Scholarship, was among those attending the special ceremony. The annual award is made in honor of Joy's husband.
“BBC has a very important ministry in the lives of young people, and in evangelism for the Lord," said Mrs. Grande. “It is very important to help in these difficult economic times so students are able to continue with their education and move into ministry."
Students are nominated for awards by professors and department heads. A financial aid committee reviews the nominees giving special consideration to those who display academic achievement, student involvement, and financial need.
