“Currently at Chemeketa, I am studying American Sign Language (ASL) and hope to earn my bachelor's degree in ASL interpreting at Western Oregon University in the future. As a DACA student, it has always been important to me to prove my worth by working hard and continuing my education. I want to provide value to my community and be able to provide service to others. I know that I can make a difference in the world if I am able to push through and complete my goals.

I couldn’t do it without your help.

Because I don't qualify for federal financial aid, I am currently working two part-time jobs while attending class virtually, full-time. I am currently working as an essential worker in retail and working as a Spanish interpreter at local dental and health clinics.

I truly believe communication is one of the best ways to turn the world into a better place for everyone. When I began working as an interpreter, I realized my passion for helping others.

I love breaking down barriers and improving communication across cultures.

Your gift has helped me in so many ways. I could not be more thankful for your kindness. I didn’t have financial support this year, and working two jobs has been a struggle. This scholarship allowed me to lower my hours to focus on attending college full-time. I am grateful for the flexibility these funds have provided me. This scholarship inspires me to push through and keep reaching for my dreams.”

Meet the McClintocks

When John and Nancy McClintock established the Clint Foundation in the early 90’s, they sought to empower hard-working students who have a desire to better their communities.

Recipients who earn the Clint Foundation Scholarship must be employed, maintain passing grades and make a moral commitment to give back to others in the future.

Since the McClintocks brought the scholarship to Chemeketa in 2009, they've been able to help dozens of students each year afford college.
