On May 30, 2019, our College Equals Opportunity (CEO) Scholarship program celebrated 15 years of awarding scholarships to deserving New Hampshire college juniors and seniors at our Concord campus. Since inception, this program has awarded $460,000 to 113 of our state’s most accomplished college students!
During our 2019 program, we welcomed 12 recipients to the College Equals Opportunity Scholarship program.
Introducing a class of recipients and presenting each recipient with their scholarship certificate is meaningful to not only our recipients, but also to families, friends, sponsors, state officials, and college access professionals from across the state of New Hampshire.
CEO Sponsor and Granite United Way President & CEO Patrick Tufts talks with White Mountains Community College President Dr. Chuck Lloyd and Manchester Community College President Dr. Susan Huard. Dr. Lloyd and Dr. Huard are also board members for The NHHEAF Network Organizations.
CEO Sponsor Jason Alexander (President & CEO of Alexander Technology Group) led “The Granite State: Building on Your Rock-Solid Foundation”, a panel discussion encouraging our scholarship recipients to build their future here in New Hampshire.

He, like all of our sponsors, encouraged recipients to remain in the State of New Hampshire as they enter the workforce.
