Oregon Academic Team Danna Sweider and Travis Swanson

Many college students save tuition money by starting their education at Clackamas Community College. Outstanding students Travis Swanson and Danna Sweider, who were selected as CCC's members of the 2014 All Oregon Academic Team, share this smart plan.

Each year, two students are selected from each of Oregon's 17 community college to be recognized for their academic achievements and community involvement. These students form the All Oregon Academic Team.  Sponsored each year by the Oregon Community College Association, the students are honored at a luncheon in April with Gov. John Kitzhaber. Each member of the team receives a scholarship to an Oregon four-year college or university to continue their education. Travis and Danna were selected as the CCC's members of the 2014 All Oregon Academic Team.

Travis Swanson of Southeast Portland is a returning student working toward a transfer degree at OIT. He has earned a 3.5 grade point average while studying renewable energy technology. Danna Sweider of Milwaukie has maintained a 3.9 grade point average while studying corrections and human services at CCC. She plans to transfer to PSU. Both students are active with the Phi Theta Kappa honor society, work as peer assistants and are scholarship recipients.

Clackamas offers students an outstanding college education and an affordable start to earning a four-year degree.
