A scholarship to help small business owners and entrepreneurs has been established through the COCC Foundation.
Wendy Every - owner of Every Idea marketing wanted to find a way to honor the memory of long time COCC business instructor Lindsay Stevens - and help out local businesses as well.
The scholarship will pay for the recipient to attend classes at the small business development center.
"People who may not be able to come up with the money to take the program, could get a scholarship and learn what we all have learned over the past 20 years, about how to best run a business and not set yourself up for failure."
Every says she hopes businesses who have benefitted from Lindsay Stevens counsel will contribute to the scholarship fund.
Each year the COCC Foundation will choose a deserving business owner or entrepreneur for the scholarship.
