“Were it not for generous organizations such as Rotary, my story would read differently than it does today. Without the support of my family and a few modest scholarships, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity or means to attend college immediately after I graduated from CCHS in 2006.
My first term of college at Linn Benton Community College, I walked in the doors with one full term of credits under my belt (take advantage of AP classes and credits, guys!) and the next term graciously paid for by scholarships from this community that will always be my home. It was a start, and it helped me get my bearings and figure out just how to navigate the enormous world before me.
That’s been almost 11 years ago. In the time since, I’ve worked with individuals with disabilities that changed my entire perspective on life. I have worked with many, many patients who taught me about compassion on a level that no books can ever teach. I’ve grown and learned, and have finally come to realize that the older I get, the less I know about mostly everything- but the key is to never stop trying to learn anyway.
Today, at almost 30, I feel grateful for my journey thus far. I’m now settled into a career with the Department of Human Services where my husband also works. As a creative outlet, I get to write about predominately metal music for HM Magazine. My life is vastly different than I envisioned it would be as an 18 year old young lady, and for that I am completely grateful. “
