The CCS Foundation has been a huge blessing for my daughter and me. As a single parent, every penny counts, and the Foundation helps us both have a bright future.

I can't even begin to explain how thankful I am for the WRA scholarship; it is the one and only reason I am still in school this quarter. I do not receive state need grants, so if it wasn't for this scholarship, I would have had to drop the program and look for full time work, which would have ended my educational goals and dreams.

I was blessed to receive two separate scholarships, and as a working mother, they both meant so much to me. The scholarships allowed me to focus on my education and getting good grades rather than how I was going to financially pay for it all. The scholarships and hard work paid off greatly as I was accepted into the nursing program through the competitive process. It means so much to me that donors chose to invest in my education, and it pushes me to do the best that I can to prove that their investment is worth it.

The Touch the Future Scholarship lightened my financial burden, allowing me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.

Being a part of the Avista Integrated Business Program at SCC has provided me with the quality of a Harvard School of Business education for a fraction of the cost. The best part of the Spokane Community College experience is the hands-on learning opportunities that are offered right in our own back yard. I am confident now to go and be a part of the exciting world of business!
