Pursuit of Excellence: Through the efforts of Chad and Beverly Dickson, an exhibit was organized honoring the artistic talents of the late Zane Simmons, former art instructor at Montgomery Community College. As a result of those efforts, an endowment was established in Zane Simmons’ memory. This scholarship is awarded to the student who has consistently demonstrated creative or scholarly activity pursuing excellence in his/her specific discipline. Recipients must be enrolled at least on a half-time basis in a curriculum program with priority given to Montgomery County residents. The scholarship may be used for tuition, fees, books or other academic costs.
