Two CCC Foundation Members Raise Money For Clatsop Community College

On Friday, September 25th, at Clatsop Community College’s 2009 Employee In-service, Gerry Swenson surprised CCC President Greg Hamann with the presentation of a check for $200—fulfilling the pledge she made at last year’s In-service to donate $2 to the CCC Foundation for each new alumni added to the Foundation’s files in 2008.

“With so many new things, both physically and academically, happening at the College this year and in the upcoming years, I feel we need to do all we can to keep our former students informed about the College,” says Gerry Swenson. “That's one major reason why the alumni base needs to continue to grow. And, to be honest, another reason is to add their names to the list of people who believe in the College and who would be willing to support us monetarily in future fundraisers.”

Are you an alumnus? Do you know someone who is? Clatsop Community College continues to build its alumni database and seeks your help! To continue the effort, Ms. Swenson has renewed her pledge to donate $2 for each new CCC alumni added to the files during the 2009 school year.

Steve Fick, CCC Foundation Vice-President, followed Ms. Swenson’s announcement with his own pledge and challenge to CCC employees, stating that he would match every dollar, up to a total of $2,000, of additional employee contributions to the CCC Foundation this year.

Please contact Nadine Faith at 503-338-2306 or nfaith@clatsopcc.edu to submit alumni information and/or to make a donation. Thank you!

Clatsop Community College is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution.
