In a letter to the Foundation, recent Peninsula College graduate Chloe Baldino wrote about the impact that the Field, Story People, and Second Chances scholarships had on her education.
“Not only did I graduate from Peninsula College entirely debt-free, but I was also provided with the peace of mind to fully engage and invest in my studies throughout the duration of my enrollment,” she said. “Without aid from the Peninsula College Foundation, I would have not had the grades, work, or motivation to apply to a school like Whitman (College), let alone to confidence to believe I deserve a seat at their table."
