Scholarship Recipient Stories

Here are a few of our stories:

I am currently attending Johnson and Wales University (JWU), North Miami campus, as a full-time student. I also do a work-study for JWU’s culinary storeroom. The CACC Staff to Student Scholarship has allowed me to pursue my dreams by helping with my first-year costs. I am on track, ready to begin the third trimester of my freshman-year on March 5, 2018, with my dining room labs and have scheduled my internship for next year winter term. Following that, I hope to become a teacher assistant in the storeroom.  I look forward to graduating with my bachelor’s in Culinary Arts and Hospitality so that I can work in the industry where I will further my knowledge, with the ultimate goal of opening my own restaurant.

I graduated from Olivet High School in 2017, having completed 2 years at CACC in the 21st Century Health Careers program. My goal then as well as now is to pursue a career in the health field. I am currently attending school at Lansing Community College as well as working in a nursing home as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), a certification I earned, at no cost, through CACC. With the help of the Staff to Student Scholarship from CACC, I was able to take classes full-time and finish my prerequisite courses, preparing me for admission into the nursing program next year at Lansing Community College, for which I recently applied. My ultimate goal, after receiving my RN, would be to attend a completion program at Michigan State University, where I will obtain my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) and work in a hospital setting.
