Bethany Beer

Bethany Beer, scholarship winner

I am hoping to get an associates degree in nursing here at the Curry Campus before transferring to a 4-year college to get a bachelor’s degree in nursing. I promise to work hard and make your investment worthwhile. I hope to eventually be able to give back to students and my community as you have helped me. – Bethany Beer, SWOCC Foundation Curry Campus Scholarship

I maintain a high grade-point average of 4.0, and I am an active community member that participates in community service and community involvement. I also work part time at a local business in my newly sought profession, Business and Accounting. Thank you again so much for this gift and wonderful opportunity to follow my dreams and obtain a college degree to help me find a higher paying job in the profession that I love. – Donna Miller-Crabtree, Bezzarides Scholarship

I am 24 years old and will be a second-year nursing student next year. I live in Brookings and attend the Curry campus. SWOCC has given me the education to progress toward my goals of becoming a well-rounded nurse. I have always believed in compassionate care for individuals and have practiced this as I go throughout my clinical rotation. I love being able to care for people and create an atmosphere of kindness. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. – Lauren Cotten, DeArmond CTE Scholarship

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.
