 CCC alum Kim Schiewe: Powered by determination and scholarships

Kimberly Schiewe is a resourceful young woman. The 2008 CCC graduate looked at several major universities before selecting CCC. Clackamas was close to home so she could keep her job at a local store and stay near her mother who was battling cancer.

Kim was president of her class at Molalla High School and moved into the Associated Student Government campus activities office position at CCC. At Clackamas, she found the knowledge and support to succeed. She also applied for CCC scholarships.

“CCC is made up of incredible people. For the first time ever, I had knowledgeable adults and mentors to assist me through the college process. I was no longer a lost student wondering what questions to simply ask,” she said. “I was constantly inspired, motivated and appreciated.”

Kim received several CCC Foundation scholarships before moving onto PSU for her bachelor’s degree.  She was one of 30 recipients among 800 applicants to receive a Ford Family Scholarship, covering 90 percent of college costs, including graduate school.

Kim is raising her young son while finishing a master’s degree in school counseling at Lewis & Clark College. She is working as a high school counselor and as a student services coordinator at a charter school. She also owns a photography business. She hopes to earn her doctorate in education.

Scholarships have helped many resourceful students like Kim reach their goals.
