TCC Foundation Scholarship Recipients
Each year Tacoma Community College Foundation holds its annual Donor & Recipient Scholarship Luncheon which connects students with their scholarship sponsors. Students can put aside their studies for a few hours to meet and thank the donors who are investing in their careers and futures. It is also a great experience for the donors, reaffirming the vital difference that community support makes.
Jordan Gonzales and Katie Abbey were the recent recipients of the 2019 Franke Tobey Jones Nursing Scholarships, a fund that was established in support of nursing students who wish to specialize in geriatric care. Jordan shared, “it’s not about the paycheck or schedule, it is about helping people and giving back to the community.” Katie, a single parent with a five year-old son conveyed her deepest appreciation saying, “From the bottom of my heart, I truly thank Franke Tobey Jones for supporting me and making the difference to all of us who are struggling to reach our goals.”
Both students will finish their degrees in August and look forward to becoming registered nurses!
