From middle school all the way through college, the College Dreams program has been a huge support to me. The staff have always answered any questions I had about school and have prepared me all along the way for what to expect in each new educational journey. Although we had awesome perks like end of the year scholarships for good grades, I think what was most important to me was knowing I had a whole team of people rooting for me. College Dreams always has your best interest in mind and will always push to find a way to help you. I also had the opportunity to be part of the Dream Savers program, which was extremely helpful in supplementing extra costs when it came to college.
I am currently on externship in the last year of my Vascular Technology program from the Oregon Institute of Technology. I will graduate with a Bachelor’s degree of Science: Vascular Technology on June 17th, 2017. Crazy as it might sound I’m also going back to school after graduation to finish a few required credits to apply for graduate school.
College Dreams has been a blessing to me and many other students who come from less fortunate backgrounds. I cannot say thank you enough for supporting myself and the other students along the way.
