What Our Curry Students Are Saying . . .
Curry Campus Events
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
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
I arrived in Brookings six years ago and have been very involved within the community in several different volunteer roles. Since moving here and more than 20 years after graduating high school, I decided it was time to begin college. Upon completion of an Associates of Science Degree at SWOCC, I will transfer to Eastern Oregon University’s online Accounting Program. I will use my degrees to further my career and to enhance my volunteer contributions in our community. I hope to serve on local boards once I have completed school. – April Talbot, Nature’s Coastal Holiday Scholarship Recipient

"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.
