Chynna Phillips

Crumpton, Baxter, Bonham Memorial Scholarship

"I have supported myself since I was 18 years old. I got a job at the campus preschool my sophomore year and have took on numerous other side jobs just to get by. This scholarship will help me tremendously this semester by being able to purchase multiple books for each of the four classes I am taking including many of the other smaller details that are required such as notebooks, pens, paper, a working computer, etc. that make attending collage an expensive experience. I feel as if a financial burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I’m hoping that now that I have this extra money to use towards school, I will not have to work every weekend to make sure I have the bare minimum. I will be able to focus more on my academics and I will prove that the opportunity of receiving this scholarship will not be wasted."

Chris Larsen Scholarship Fund

"Being a recipient of the Chris Larson Scholarship has already reduced my stress level, freed-up more of my time so that I can be more focused on my studies and community service efforts. I brings me joy knowing I have a financial cushion to protect me from poverty. I will be conducting scholarship preparation workshops for the youth participants at Youth Spirit Artworks and the East Oakland Youth Development Center (both non-profit organizations) to promote scholarship and higher learning opportunities. I am disabled. I can now afford to get my car repaired so that travel about with always worrying about the risk of harm while traveling at night. Being a recipient of this scholarship leaves in eternally inspired to achieve even more and that all things are possible. Thank God for the Chris Larsen Scholarship Fund!"

Karl Richard Lane Scholarship

"As a new parent (I have a three-month old son), this funding is instrumental in allowing me to continue pursuing my degree. It will allow me to pay my tuition, providing me with much-needed time to focus on developing my research agenda and meeting my program milestones. I would like to use the results from the study that I am implementing (described in the previous question) to write into a position paper (one of my program milestones), which I hope to have published in an academic journal. This funding will allow me the time to work on this and begin contributing to knowledge in the field of teacher education in addition to my coursework."

Transfer Articulation Bridge (TAB)- Lend Lease Second Chance Scholarship

"It will help me to pay bills, eat, and exist in the Cithy of San Francisco as a struggling student. I would love to use my degree to help me get a job with my tribe as a counselor or teacher on the Hoopa Valley Indian reservation."

Scholarship Recipient Kennette Hoke

Crumpton, Baxter, Bonham Memorial Scholarship

"I will use the proceeds of this scholarship to pay down some of the loan that I took out in order to fund my education for this spring semester. I am immensely grateful that I have the opportunity to do this. Paying for living expenses and university classes on a teacher salary is not an easy undertaking. This scholarship provides a wonderful step towards my 2020 graduation from the Teacher of the Visually Impaired program and my completion of my clear mild-moderate credential in May 2018."
