MacKenzie DoublerEach Fall our location issues a scholarship to one of our Freeport students. Faculty convene and determine which of the candidates best meet the Scholarship Criteria and fulfills Columbia College’s mission of providing a high quality, affordable education and lifelong learning in order to pursue excellence in human endeavor.

Through generous Annual Fund gifts from alumni, friends, staff, and adjunct faculty of Columbia College, Freeport, Illinois, the campus is able to grant a $823 scholarship to a current Columbia College student. Established in 2002, the scholarship is designed to award high quality students with demonstrated financial need.

This year’s Freeport Location Scholar is MacKenzie Doubler!

Mackenzie is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services. She hopes to one day work with the Department of Child and Family Services and help serve children and families in her community. Congratulations MacKenzie!
