What Our Curry Students Are Saying . . .

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

April Talbot

April Talbot received the Nature's Coastal Holiday Scholarship

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

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

Barbara Eells/Class of 1986

'None of us makes it to our goals alone'

If there's one word that best describes Barbara Eells, it is "determined." That mindset has guided Eells her entire adult life, starting with her first Southwestern class in 1975. She wanted a college education, no matter the barriers.

In 2018, Southwestern honored Barbara Eells with its Distinguished Alumna award for her dedication to learning and improving people's lives in Curry County.
