To the Clackamas Community College Community,

My name is Sam Bezzant. I am grateful for the support you provide to students at Clackamas Community College. Your support strengthens the CCC Foundation’s commitment to helping students realize their dreams.

A few months ago, I found myself at a crossroads. While juggling full-time work, pursuing my studies at CCC, and raising my 12-year-old daughter, my education and my family’s stability were at risk. The CCC Foundation stepped in and provided a month's rent. I was able to stay enrolled, continue my academic journey, and inch closer to the goal I had set for myself and the future I envisioned for my daughter.

Today, I have immense gratitude and pride. I will graduate from CCC next spring, and I have enrolled at Oregon State University to further my education in Applied Computer Science with a minor in Business. CCC, bolstered by the unwavering support of the Foundation, served not just as an educational institution for me but also propelled me toward my career aspirations. I now have a stable foundation for my family’s future.

However, I am but one of the many lives the Foundation has touched. Every day, countless students at CCC face a myriad of challenges, each hoping for an opportunity to transform their lives. By supporting the CCC Foundation, you are not just donating; you are investing in the dreams, hopes, and futures of students, ensuring that education remains accessible to all, irrespective of their circumstances.

As this year draws to a close, I ask that you continue your support. Let's make CCC a place of hope, learning, and opportunity for everyone. Please consider making a gift to support the work of the Foundation, be it for basic needs or scholarships. Your support can change lives, just as it did for me.

Thank you for helping me reach my dreams.

With deepest gratitude,

Sam Bezzant
