When Benjamin Bolling graduates from Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) this fall, he will be debt free, thanks to the Work Ready Kentucky scholarship.
Bolling is in HCTC’s Welding Program and he looks forward to finding a good paying job close to home. “I want to make a decent living and give back to my community,” noted the Cornettsville resident.
He is glad that Admissions Director Scott Gross told him about the scholarship. “I am extremely thankful for the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship for many reasons. It has allowed me to pursue my education without the burden of worrying about how I was going to pay for my college expense. Also, when I complete my education, I will be debt free which is such a huge relief. The Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship is a wonderful program and I am very appreciative of the fact that it has helped me to be able to achieve my goal of becoming a welder,” he said.
