Why support Clark College on PenguinsGive?

 

Madelyn Hennerty – Clark College student

Maddie is studying sociology at Clark College. She plans to transfer to Washington State University Vancouver and major in sociology once her studies at Clark are complete. “Philanthropy can help chip away at inequalities in the education system for students from marginalized communities and historically disadvantaged backgrounds,” Maddie said. “In the future, I would love to come back to Clark College to teach as a professor and work with underserved student populations.”

Brittini Lasseigne – VP of the Clark College Foundation Alumni Board

“As a community college, Clark strives to provide opportunities to expand perspectives, further careers, or even explore new beginnings. I joined the alumni board because I was looking for a way to give back in a way that was as meaningful as what Clark gave me. Whether you give your time, talent, treasure or you inspire others to take action, you make a difference, and it’s worth it.
