Elaine Carpenter Memorial Scholarship

The Elaine Carpenter Memorial Scholarship was established in spring 2019 by Elaine’s daughter, Linda Kent, who is a faculty member at NTC. The reason Linda shared for using memorial dollars for a student scholarship is because she wanted to use it for something that was important to her Mom. Education was one of the things she strongly valued. She was a single mother raising four children and her advice to her children was, “Go to school and get a good education because that is something no one can take away from you.” This scholarship is to be awarded to a continuing student in the Nursing program at NTC.
