Two students enrolled in the Human Services program at Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) are making a difference on campus and in the local community.
The All-Washington Academic Team awards ceremony honors students from Washington State two-year colleges for their scholastic achievements and community and college service. 64 students representing 34 community and technical colleges participated in the ceremony.
Parker, a Human Services major, says she plans to transfer to a four-year college and work toward her Master’s Degree in Social Work. She currently helps young Native Americans feel proud of their heritage through “Friday Fun Day,” a cultural education group for young people.
Dye, also a Human Services major, says she is working toward her goal of becoming a chemical dependency counselor. Dye works with AIDS patients and is a strong advocate for the homeless.
