What Our Curry Students Are Saying . . .

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

Jason Liddell

Jason Liddell is a 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

Natasha Holmes

Natasha Holmes is pursuing a nursing degree.

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
