EDMONDS COLLEGE FOUNDATION
INSPIRING STUDENT SUCCESS
Heather knew she wanted to go to college, but she didn't know how she would pay for it. Growing up, her mother was absent and her dad had to support Heather and her two brothers.
While engaging with the DECA marketing program in high school, she fell in love with business and marketing and knew she wanted to pursue a marketing degree. Heather came to Edmonds College for her Business Direct Transfer Degree. Heather demonstrated her commitment to achieving her academic goals, maintaining a 3.7 GPA, while taking 15-20 credits per quarter.
Heather is looking forward to pursuing her Bachelor’s degree with a focus on entrepreneurship, creative marketing, and product development. Her ultimate goal is to be a creative director working on e-commerce marketing campaigns.
YOUR INVESTMENT AT WORK
Every student has a unique set of needs and barriers that have the potential to hinder their success. The Edmonds College Foundation Student Success Fund is designed to be flexible to meet each student’s needs. In addition to providing financial support in the form of annual scholarships, quarterly Complete the Dream awards, and one-time emergency grants for basic needs, the Student Success Fund also invests in impactful programs designed to provide wraparound services and impactful educational opportunities.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT CHANGES LIVES
Kelsea, a business student at Edmonds College, is one of many students impacted by the pandemic. When her partner, Tony, had to stop working due to someone testing positive at work, they immediately lost their source of income. Then Tony, along with their two-year old son, fell ill with the virus.
When Kelsea applied for Emergency Assistance through the EC Foundation, Tony had been out of work for a month and they had used up all their savings for every day essentials. Emergency assistance helped their family remain in their home, Kelsea stay in school, and the healing process to begin.
