After graduating from Franklin High School in 2009, Angel Ordaz didn’t jump
right into college. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to do next. He got a job in
retail. He talked to friends about schools and careers. By the end of the year,
he came to a clear decision: to attend college at CCC and train for a career in
final year at CCC, Angel is working as an Associated Student Government
officer. He’s also getting financial help from a CCC Foundation scholarship –
the Roger Rook scholarship.
Angel is on track
for his new career. “My criminal justice classes at CCC have been very helpful
in giving me insight to a career as a police officer. It’s definitely
reaffirmed my career choice,” says Angel.
