Tallahassee Community College is hoping to form a relationship with Gadsden County students and families through a new scholarship program. 

Tallahassee Community College unveiled the TCC Gadsden LEARN Scholarship Program Thursday. The program aims to help fill the gap between financial aid and tuition expenses for any Gadsden students graduating with a GPA of 3.0 and above. TCC President Jim Murdaugh says the funding comes from Gadsden community members.

“It has to be noted that we have a long standing relationship in this county, and it has to be acknowledged that wonderful people in this community are the people who provided the funds that are necessary for us to use to help change their future,” Murdaugh said.

One of those donors was former Speaker of the Florida House James Harold Thompson, who along with other members of Gretna Presbyterian Church helped fund the program. Scholarships will be awarded starting in the fall semester.
