Curry Campus Events

Sarah Cameron

Sarah Cameron is a scholarship recipient.

I feel successful and capable of changing my life with my degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Knowing that someone out there is aware of me and my journey to obtain my degree is comforting, and it instills confidence in me to keep doing what is necessary, as I am still in the beginning of my two-year degree program.  It feels wonderful to have your support as I further my education. – Sarah Cameron, Pringle Scholarship Recipient

Caren Vastine

Caren Vastine is a Curry Campus General Scholarship Recipient

I have worked in the healthcare profession for over 25 years in a variety of roles, from medical billing to hands on patient care as a CNA. No matter what my role has been, providing compassionate care to patients and their families has been my focus. I look forward to continuing this in my next role as a registered nurse. – Caren Vastine, Curry Campus General Scholarship Recipient

Danny Hawthorne

Danny Hawthorne is a 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
