Clover Park Technical College scholarship recipients and donors were recognized at the college’s 9th Annual Scholarship Banquet at the McGavick Event Center April 21.
From Summer Quarter 2014 to Spring Quarter 2015, 132 students received scholarships to go toward their education at CPTC.
“(A scholarship) meant that someone I had no interaction with looked at my achievements and had faith that I would continue to succeed in my studies,” said Joseph Kauer, scholarship recipient speaker.
Kauer has a 3.86 GPA in the Computer Networking and Information Systems Security Program. He shared his story of having to start over after a career at a concrete factory, and enrolling at CPTC at the age of 33. Kauer received the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarship.
