New Scholarships Awarded
More than 20 scholarships, were awarded recently by the College’s Foundation. The awards, totaling $45,000, are in addition to the more than $500,000 in scholarships presented last Spring for the 2013-2014 school year.
Several of the Fall scholarships are funded through the Forest C. and Ruth V. Kelsey Foundation, designated for Harbor students who are studying automotive, nursing, education and forestry.
Bi-Mart, one of the Harbor’s newest employee-owned retailers, sponsored a new scholarship for students studying business. According to the Bi-Mart announcement, the employees “hope to have a positive and powerful impact on the lives of the student recipients, with the long-term goal of helping GHC prepare students for employment.”
Two other new scholarships are the Kasey Lee Caskey Memorial Scholarship donated by his family to a student enrolled in carpentry or another vocational program; and a scholarship established by the daughter of Ronald Murray Catlin, which is open to all students, with a preference to those studying history.
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Twenty-seven Washington community and technical colleges are among the top military friendly schools in the nation according to Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning to civilian life.
The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list released this week honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that do the most to ensure the success of military service members, veterans, and spouses.
Victory Media compiled the list through research and data-driven analysis of surveys from more than 10,000 federal Department of Veterans Affairs-approved schools nationwide, along with a survey of more than 4,000 student veterans. The results were independently audited by national accounting firm Ernst & Young. Washington’s community and technical colleges were among 1,818 schools nationwide to make the list.
Washington community and technical colleges on the Military Friendly Schools list are: Bates, Bellevue, Bellingham, Big Bend, Cascadia, Centralia, Clark, Clover Park, Columbia Basin, Edmonds, Everett, Grays Harbor, Green River, Lake Washington, Lower Columbia, North Seattle, Olympic, Peninsula, Pierce, Renton, Shoreline, Skagit Valley, South Puget Sound, South Seattle, Tacoma, Walla Walla and Whatcom.
Grays Harbor College offers many programs and support staff to help our military students be successful. This year, we will have Tom Mills, serving as our Vetcorps Navigator. He can be reached at his campus office, 360.538.4174.
A new survey places Grays Harbor College as the top rated community college in the state, and 15th in the country.
The 2013 Washington Monthly college rankings are out and rank colleges throughout the country on a series of criteria. Four other Washington schools, Cascadia, Green River, Tacoma, and Highline Community Colleges all made the rankings for the top 50 in the country. The University of Washington was ranked as 13th for National Colleges. Overall, 14 Washington colleges were ranked in the Top 50 of their respective sizes.
The ranking from WashingtonMonthly.com lists schools based on academic challenge, student effort, retention rates, and a number of other categories.
The listing is in response to a recent U.S. News & World Report, which ranked schools nationwide. This survey rated schools on what they are doing for the country, such as “improving social mobility, producing research, and promoting public service.”
