Congratulations, Community Read Scholars!
Students Kelley Hefflinger, Thanh Nhat Nguyen, and Juan Valdez have been awarded $1,100 scholarships to apply toward their spring quarter tuition as part of the Edmonds CC Community Read.
Hefflinger's artistic response to the book was to paint a door with acrylic and applied images on rice paper. Nguyen wrote a poem, "I Can," and created a video. Valdez created a poem and collage entitled "El Legado: My legacy." The students' final projects will be on display in Mukilteo Hall.
