LAVC President, Dr. Erika Endrijonas helps award 2014 Cooperative Education Scholarships to Aneta Tor-Gonzalez and Brandon Rouckus. Two LAVCstudents were awarded $250.00 scholarships from the Cooperative Education Department in 2014! The "Coop Ed" program allows students to earn college credit for structured work experience. Aneta and Brandon both submitted scholarship applications outlining how their work experience (in the LAVC Foundation Office and with Tree People respectively) complimented their academic studies at Los Angeles Valley College and helped clarify career goals and advancement. We congratulate these students for earning scholarship awards and succeeding in the Coop Ed program, a program Dr. Endrijonas cites as “an invaluable opportunity to put what is learned in the classroom into action in the workplace.”
