Student Emergency Fund

The Goode Family Student Emergency Fund at Hopkinsville Community College Students was initiated in Spring of 2018. A seed gift from local donors Dr. Lyndon and Shelia Goode in honor of the Inauguration of Dr. Alissa Young provided initial funding.

The goal of the fund is to assist students in good academic standing at HCC who need immediate and temporary support and without which would be in jeopardy to continue to persist in college. Support will be granted to HCC students with demonstrable and immediate critical needs including food, shelter, transportation, medication, health care, safety, and other appropriate necessities. Students applying for assistance must provide proof of hardship with the application. Students are granted assistance as a gift; however there is an expectation of appropriate thank you letters and the hope that as student recipients recover and experience the joy of receving that they will 'give back' so that future students in similar situations are supported. In no instance are funds awarded directly to students. Students must be Hopkinsville or Fort Campbell students of the collge. 

Students are reminded that for immediate assistance with food insecurity, both the Hopkinsville and Fort Campbell campuses have food and other resources readily available from PATHFINDER PANTRY. The pantry services are available daily on the Hopkinsville campus, Monday - Thursday noon until 1:00 p.m. in Technology Center Room and on the Fort Campbell campus by stopping in the office. Other pick up times can be arranged by contacting Elana Stubbs at (270) 707-3825 or Yvette Eastham at (270) 707-3731.  

Applications for the Goode Family Student Emergency Fund are available from any staff or faculty of the college and are reviewed by the student emergency fund committee with a goal of a determination of support within 48 hours.
