Clatsop Community College is proud to announce the Outstanding Student Scholars for 2019, Leland Weideman of Seaview, WA and Avery Anderson of Jewell, OR. Faculty and staff nominate students whom they believe are most outstanding in terms of excellence in the classroom, general intellectual curiosity, service to the college and their community, and the ability to share their talents with others.
The two finalists were honored with a trip to Salem for a luncheon with student scholars selected by other Oregon community colleges and their presidents on April 26th. They were presented to the House and the Senate where the governor meets each scholar individually and presents them with medals noting their academic accomplishments. They will also receive an Oregon transfer scholarship.
Leland Weideman is in his second year at Clatsop Community College working towards an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree. He is on the Dean’s list for his outstanding 4.0 GPA and also received the Information Literacy Prize last year through a writing competition through the CCC Library. Leland’s family support to pursue an education has helped him achieve this success he has had thus far. He states, “My parents weren’t exactly the schooling type, but when they saw the potential in me they gave it their all to ensure that I kept my education going. So here I am with a strong 4.0 GPA in the first two years of college. While I may not know how many more years I have to go, I know that as long as I keep my head up and my brain sharp, I can accomplish anything.”
Avery Anderson will be graduating with an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree and plans to transfer to Oregon State University. Avery’s passion for education is evident with his participation and membership in Phi Theta Kappa and has consistently made the Dean’s list at CCC as well as the Honor Roll. While Avery is still in his second year of classes, he can already claim to be a CCC alumni, “I graduated high school in 2015 and over the next two years learned to weld and earned an Associate degree in Welding/Fabrication in 2017. I returned to Clatsop once again the following year and began my pursuit of a STEM degree. I’m now in my second year of my transfer degree with the hope of eventually pursuing a career in astrophysics.”
