Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 12, 2010 3A Senior spotlig00 t FRC student wins big scholarship Feather River College biol- ogy student Ehren Bentz has been awarded a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Transfer Scholarship. The scholarship honors excellence by sup- porting outstanding commu- nity college students with fi- nancial need to transfer to and complete their bache- lor's degrees at the nation's top four-year colleges and universities. They are only available to students graduating from a two-year school and transfer- ring to a university to pur- sue a bachelor's degree. Every community college in the United States is eligi- ble to nominate one to two students for consideration by the foundation, which in turn chooses between 30 and 50 students to get the award. Students awarded the schol- arships are among the very best students in the entire country. The awards are for up to $30,000 per year, for two to three years. Being selected as a Jack Kent Cooke Scholar is a tremendous honor and ac- complishment. As such, the foundation expects scholar- ship recipients to maintain a record of academic excel- lence, hold themselves to the highest ethical standards and work cooperatively with foundation staff. Bentz, a graduate of Greenville High and a Ma- rine Corps vet who served two tours in Iraq, was also accepted to a very presti- gious undergraduate sum- mer research program of- fered by Avila University in Kansas City, Mo.

The Feather River College Student Support Services program took a trip April 27 to Ashland, Ore., to tour Southern Oregon University and to attend "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The TRiO program pro- vides eligible participants the support needed to suc- cessfully transfer to the uni- versity level. Services in- clude: academic advising; academic support; assis- tance with college admis- sions and financial aid processes; guidance with major selection and/or ca- reer development; and pro- viding financial literacy in- formation.

Bentz hopes to obtain a PhD in herpetology from Oregon State University, af- ter completing his degree at FRC and the summer re- search program. The Jack Cooke Foundation Transfer scholarship should go a long ways towards meeting those goals. Need help REPLACING I ;E, CONSTRUCTION SINCE 1984 General Building Contractor Calif.

His repairs included replacing a piston and rings, boring out the cylinder and fine-tuning the engine. The end result was a ready-to-ride cycle. Whiting's talent and pas- sion for small engine repairs of all types led him to this pro- ject. Feinblum not only spent hours teaching Whiting his trade, he also mentored senior Sam Ruthchow in cycle repair. In addition, Feinblum wel- comed three seniors to job shadow and interview him and each gained knowledge of small business practices. All the high school seniors who spent time with Feinblum ben- efited not only from his exten- sive knowledge of engines and business, but also observed his good customer service prac- tices and learned the impor- tance of good work ethics and communication.
