Student Impact

Gaston College students appreciate the generosity of donors that help them as they work toward their goals. One student scholar recently said, “The financial assistance provided to me by the Gaston College Foundation helped me during a severe and overwhelming time when I thought I was going to give up. I am very proud to be a Gaston College student!”
