480 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PMC STUDENTS
In addition to standard courses required for licensure as a funeral director and embalmer, our funeral service program is better preparing our students by providing students at all three Pierce Colleges two certifications: ICCFA Cremation Arranger Certification and the Crematory Operations Certification. This could not have been done without the continued support of our generous donors. More than 480 scholarships were provided this year by Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc. and Implant Recycling for our two ICCFA certifications.
Mid-America College of Funeral Service would like to thank Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc. and Implant Recycling for being willing to invest in students, cultivate learning, inspire discovery, and help our students have access to a future full of possibilities. #ThankaPMCdonor
