CHINESE CULTURAL EXCHANGE EVENT at BRCC
BRCC Foundation hosted “Beijing Inner Voice Art Troupe Co. Ltd”. Founded in 1992 by Jianzhi Mu. It is the first art troupe for people with different types of disabilities. Currently, the cast and crew totals more than 100 people, 80% of whom are disabled with a versatile range of artistic skills. Troupe members are able to show their confidence, self-reliance, self-love, self-worth and spirit through their performance.

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) Foundation was given thousands of dollars to go toward one of the school's need-based scholarship program.
Capital One Bank donated $25,000 for scholarships that will be used in BRCC's STEM division.
The money will be used for the Capital One Need Based STEM Scholarship, which will be given to students needing financial aid to help pay for things like text books as well as tuition if needed. The students receiving the scholarships have to remain in good standing at BRCC.
"We are tremendously grateful to Capital One Bank for their willingness to fund an initiative that will make a college education a reality for those who are in need of financial assistance, and then to make the time students spend here at BRCC as rewarding as possible," said Philip Smith, executive director of the BRCC Foundation.
"We are proud of Capital One's contribution to BRCC's STEM program. Capital One Bank is a longtime supporter of BRCC, and we applaud the college for developing programs that help local deserving students develop skills that will help them succeed in the digital economy," said Tammy Boyd, a Capital One branch manager.
