High School: Rochester High School  

Major: Undecided

Interests/hobbies: I enjoy making signs for my small business, hanging out with my cousins. I spend most of my time at my other job, Starbucks, so free time is limited!

Why you came to CC: Centralia College was the best local financial option for me! Deciding to go has been one of my best decisions!

What do you want to be when you grow up and how CC is going to help you achieve your goal? I want to be involved in helping those who’s do not have a support system, but am still undecided where that will take me! Centralia College will help me achieve this by allowing me to go to college and be a part of Student Activities Team, that oftentimes deals largely with these types of issues.

What are you looking most forward to being on SAT? I am looking forward to the new activities and events that we have planned and being surrounded by a supportive team!

High School: Onalaska High School

Major: Communications

Interests/hobbies: Music, theater, coaching

Why you came to CC: Centralia College is the perfect stepping stone for high school graduates who were not ready to go to a university right out of high school. So here I am taking the step towards great things with everyone else.

What do you want to be when you grow up and how CC is going to help you achieve your goal? I am Peter Pan. I never want to grow up.

What are you looking most forward to being on SAT? The SAT really has the opportunity to establish the culture on campus. The effort we put into our events will act a like a mirror for the student body. I imagine it like this, good quality events means good quality college, and a good quality college means students care a little more. When students care more there is a higher chance of success for the student.
