Suzanne Richards

Suzanne Richards’ journey to success began more than four years ago when she fled from a violent relationship, taking her daughter and a few possessions to Oregon in the dark of night. She arrived in Oregon a broken woman, her body injured, her self-esteem gone. She credits Clackamas Community College with the transformation of her life.

Suzanne first encountered Clackamas when her car ran out of gas in front of the CCC’s Harmony campus. On crutches, she made her way into the lobby to use the phone. College had never been part of Suzanne’s plan, but she signed up for placement tests before she left Harmony that day.

Suzanne enrolled in the Life and Career Options Program, a program that supports people through life transitions. finished the program and enrolled full time in college classes, supported by three scholarships from the CCC Foundation. She graduated from CCC with honors with a degree in  Human Services from and plans to work with children in protective custody.
