University: Occidental College
Major: Political Science/History
Scholarships Received from JCEF:
Currently a junior on the Dean’s List at Occidental College in Los Angeles, I was fortunate to have received several scholarships through the Josephine County Education Fund. Without this generous assistance, such as the Marian Ruggless renewable scholarship, it would not have been possible for me to attend such a highly regarded institution.
Following my freshman year, I gained valuable knowledge of the legal field through an internship with an attorney near Portland. This year I am looking forward to working in the Los Angeles area in the political arena as an intern or campaign volunteer, continuing to write for The Occidental Weekly, and contributing to the Occidental Varsity track team in pole vaulting.
Thank you Josephine County Education Fund!
