Green River Community College
Information Networking Major
"Thank you so very much for the scholarship award. It will help immensely with my schooling related costs and it is a great honor to receive it. TO answer your questions, I heard about your scholarship through the Green River Community College website. I followed their link, which led me to you. I am currently enrolling in my second quarter of the Information Technology Networking program and I plan to attain my AAS by the fall of 2013. I will also be completing my AAS in Information Technology soon after that as well. I may continue on into a bachelor or find a job in the related field, depending on my family needs.
Winning this award will give me some flexibility in registered for my classes, as well as the freedom to focus on my studies. I am a mother of 5 children, so getting assistance for child care so I can make classes and have time to study has been a challenge.
I have been impressed with the easy navigation of your website and looking at the different colleges and what they have to offer me. I have a 16 year old who is looking at colleges and this has proven to be a great resources for her as well. I would have liked to see more schools listed that were available in our area."
