Two Community College of Beaver County students received the Aliquippa Wolves Club scholarship at a banquet on July 17. On behalf of the Aliquippa Wolves Club, CCBC announces Alliea Taitt-Martinez of Aliquippa and Krista Hinzman of Hopewell Township as the 2013 – 2014 Aliquippa Wolves Club Scholarship recipients.

Currently a second-year nursing student, Alliea had the ambition of helping others since she was young.  Alliea was on the President’s List for the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters and is also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. After graduation, she plans to continue her education to become a registered nurse geneticist. “Not only do I want to advance in nursing, I want to be the best I can be in the field,” says Alliea. Thanks to the scholarship, Alliea is able to purse her lifelong dream.

An accounting major, Krista plans to graduate from CCBC with her associate’s degree then pursue a bachelor’s degree in accounting at La Roche College. Krista was on the President’s List for the fall 2012 and the Dean’s List for the spring 2013 semester. “This scholarship will help me be more financially stable when I graduate from college,” says Krista.

Aliquippa Wolves Club members created the scholarship in 2003 to provide students in Hopewell, Aliquippa and Center with educational funds. Their goal is to “make it more affordable for students to earn their degrees.” By providing funds to students like Alliea and Krista, the Aliquippa Wolves Club members are accomplishing their goal.
