  • COCC Foundation

    “With all the changes our world is facing, one thing that has remained consistent is knowing that my education and career goals are never at question due to financial hardship. This last academic school has been a challenge to many from switching from a face-to-face learning environment to completely being online. The roadblocks I’ve faced continue to empower me, give me insight, challenge me and are constantly teaching me the importance of never giving up my dreams, no matter the cost, or difficulty attached. Thank you for believing in me.” —Kellie, scholarship recipient
