In 2010, the Salmon Creek Business Group chose WSU Vancouver’s College of Business to be the beneficiary of their first gift. The scholarship of $1,000 was awarded Spring Semester 2011 to a senior who demonstrated that they had been an active volunteer in the community within the last year. In February 2011, the recipient, Kristin Miller, attended the board meeting to meet all the board members and talk about how this scholarship affected her. Kristin was most impressive working as a massage therapist, working as an intern in an accounting firm, and attending school full time. Kristin impressed us with her tenacity of cold calling accounting firms asking if they were looking for an intern. Her hard work paid off and she is hoping to get hired when she graduates.
