Rachel (Robinson) McGuire ‘91, Director of Enrollment Services at NIACC, established the Robinson-McGuire Scholarship for a full-time female athlete in 2014. McGuire has always felt so appreciative for the opportunities and experiences she had as a student athlete. “If it weren’t for athletics, I probably would not have attended college. Coming to NIACC and being successful on and off the court and diamond really opened my eyes. I realized I was capable of earning higher degrees and being a leader. My hope is that other young women will have the same opportunity through this scholarship, to play sports in college and become a leader in their profession.” McGuire also credited the mentoring she received when she first started working for NIACC in 1993. “There were so many people who were willing to mentor me as a young professional. I still think of them, almost daily, and wonder how they might go about solving an issue. I can’t express my gratitude enough to those individuals. I wanted to provide this scholarship for young women who are just starting their educational career. I want these young women to know someone is looking out for their best interests and life potential. NIACC changed my life and I want to do the same for others.
