The exhibit features the photos and stories of 23 current students at Edmonds Community College. They are students who:
To get to Edmonds CC, they have had to learn English as a second language, overcome financial barriers, find services to support disabilities, and have the confidence and perseverance to believe they belonged in, and could succeed in, college.
The students are sharing their stories with the community to inspire others to pursue their educational goals and to honor the sacrifices their family members made to help them earn a college education.
