Tacoma Community College announced on March 21 that one of its students, Sharon Jang, was recognized as Washington’s New Century Transfer Pathway Scholar.
Jang is working towards a career in dentistry. To support her continuing education, Jang will receive a total of $9,250 in scholarships — including $5,000 from Follett Higher Education.
The scholarships will be presented at the American Association of Community Colleges Convention (AACC) in Orlando, Fla. this month.
Jang, who was also honored as a member of the 2019 All-Washington Academic Team, will attend the AACC event.
