Two years ago, the Oregon Community Foundation made the announcement of the establishment of the Stokes Family Scholarship fund which supports students at Rogue Community College. In just those 2 years, the Fund has supported 5 scholarship awards. Roger Stokes explained the intent of the Fund to focus on scholarship opportunities for adults who are typically balancing working, may be raising families and going back-to-school to advance their education and career opportunities.

Jessica Rutter, one of those recipients, shared her story of hard work, determination and dedication to education and how the scholarship program helped her achieve her goals. A truly inspirational story.
