On Friday, June 9, graduating PCC student Rosalie Tucker was profiled by the newspaper (“Grad dances to her life’s next stage” by Wade Nkrumah). Tucker will move on to Los Angeles where she’ll pursue a dance career at UCLA. She recently earned a scholarship to cover tuition and living expenses – as much as $30,000 yearly for as many as three years.
PCC was mentioned in an article highlighting the $155 million, New Columbia mixed-income development on the site of the former Columbia Villa public housing project on June 6 (“Ceremony ushers in New Columbia’s emerging hub,” by Stephen Beaven).
The new WorkSource North site, a partnership that includes the Housing Authority, Portland Community College, the state and Worksystems Inc., will provide career counseling, training and job placement.
