Photo submitted FRC program awards scholarships Feather River College's Student Support Services Program, part of the Department of Education's TRIO program, has awarded $1,000 scholarships to 24 first-generation college students. All the students are worthy recipients, earning a cumulative average 3.35 GPA. Those students receiving the scholarships are Desirea Adame, Bronson Aiwohi, Abby Ferrall, Brenden Fricke, Kirsten Goldsmith, Ashley Hibbard, Nina Holmes, Kayla Irmen, Timothy Kauffman, Kody Kuhlman, Emily Larzabal, Zane Medeiros, Allison Newquist, Reuben Nwando, Stephanie Ovitz, Sahbreena Patton, Quincy Pierce, Nathan Reynolds, Selena Riggins, Michael Sanderson, Beth Volz, Jasper Whitley, Jermaine Worley and Makaylah Wright. The goal of the SSS/TRIO grant is to help first-generation, economically disadvantaged college students graduate from FRC and transfer to a four-year college or university. This year, of the 24 winners, 10 are graduating from FRC and nine are transferring to four-year colleges. The transferring students are seeking degrees in biochemistry, kinesiology, nursing, sociology, theology, architecture and Japanese. The student who is not transferring is planning on becoming a correctional officer. 'The application process included a personal statement and interview. When asked what they would do if they won $1 million, overwhelmingly they responded that they would give back first to their families and then pay off student loans. If any money was left over, they would invest and save for their own children's college fund. Annually, the SSS/TRIO program serves 160 college students, offering them academic advising, financial aid literacy, academic workshops, cultural activities and transfer assistance. ona Proudly Serving Plumas County Since 1992 Breeann Pence Lori Lomas Curtis Lomas = e tax Income Tax Preparation for Individuals & Businesses FREE efile , Tax Problem Resolution, Accounting, Payroll, Insurance Lori Morrell Lomas, E.A.
