Regina Moore Awarded Scholarship from NBCC Foundation

Regina H. Moore of Lexington, North Carolina, has been awarded the 2013 NBCC Foundation Rural Scholarship. The rural scholarship is awarded to counseling students who commit to practicing in rural areas upon graduation.

The mission of the NBCC Foundation is to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change. The rural scholarship was created in 2009 to improve access to counseling services in rural communities, which suffer disproportionately from a lack of mental health care. Nearly 60 students from across the country applied for the five rural scholarships, and the NBCC Foundation Board of Trustees awarded an additional scholarship due to the high caliber of this year’s applicants.

As one of six 2013 rural scholarship recipients, Ms. Moore will receive $5,000 to support her counseling education and recognize her commitment to the underserved. Ms. Moore is a graduate of North Carolina Wesleyan College and is enrolled in North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s school counseling master’s program. Having grown up in Davidson County, North Carolina, she is currently giving back to her hometown by working as a graduation coach in a local school. After graduation, she looks forward to continuing to serve her area as a school counselor, inspiring students to achieve their dreams.

The NBCC Foundation has also awarded six $5,000 military scholarships to increase the number of counselors available to  serve military service members, veterans and their families.

The NBCC Foundation plans to continue offering scholarships to increase the number of counselors in the areas where they are needed most. For more information or to make a gift in support of the Foundation’s mission, please visit www.nbccf.org.
