What Our Curry Students Are Saying . . .
Curry Campus Events
I am pursuing an associate in nursing and ultimately wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing and potentially a masters. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl and not a single experience throughout my life has changed that dream. I decided after having children that I wanted to give my boys all my attention and attend school once they were both old enough to be registered in school. I began my journey to the nursing program just over a year ago. – Natasha Holmes, Curry Campus General Scholarship Recipient
Attending Southwestern Oregon Community College will put me on the path for becoming a Physician Assistant and either work in dermatology or family medicine. Once my schooling is complete, I would like to move back to my hometown of Gold Beach, because I care deeply for the people that live there. I think it is very important that the members of the community receive quality healthcare. – Danny Hawthorne, Art and Toni Poole Scholarship Recipient
This scholarship is incredibly helpful for me to continue working towards my Associate of Arts Transfer degree at SWOCC, especially considering these uncertain times. My goal is to teach English and/or Drama for high school students here in Oregon. Looking back upon my time working with people of all ages on play productions, I realized that I enjoy teaching. I enjoy being able to take information and find a way to help other people to understand it. – Jason Liddell, Nature’s Coastal Holiday Scholarship Recipient

Cara Dailey, Brookings Mom and Education Major
"I always wanted to do more."
Cara Dailey has worked in and around schools her entire adult life. As a bus driver, a teaching aide, in the library, in the cafeteria, and as an Aspire coach mentoring students at a local high school. All the while, homeschooling four kids and always working part- or full-time left Cara little opportunity for her own education.
“I always wanted to do more,” Cara said.
