Eastern’s Amanda Sites Is New President Of Statewide Financial Aid Association
Amanda Sites, left, director of financial aid at Eastern WV Community and Technical College, took office November 1 as president of the West Virginia Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (WVASFAA). Last May, she presented an Eastern “High School Senior” Scholarship award to Moorefield High School’s Danielle Smith, now a pre-nursing major at the college.
In just the last three years, Sites pointed out, the total amount of aid disbursed at Eastern has doubled, and now more than two-thirds of all students receive some type of financial assistance. That aid includes a one-year scholarship to one graduating senior from each public high school in Eastern’s service district (Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral, Pendleton and Tucker counties of West Virginia).
