- Miguel Morgan, an electric major, plans on attending Portland Community College (PCC) this fall before entering into a journeyman electrician apprenticeship.
- Kimanh Nguyen, a media design major, plans to attend PCC to obtain an associate transfer degree to eventually get a bachelor’s degree in business marketing, education or design
