MOSES LAKE — Six college students who overcame barriers and transformed their lives through education were honored last night during the 2019 Big Bend Community College Transforming Lives Award Recognition dinner.
The BBCC Board of Trustees hosts the annual dinner each fall to recognize students who have pushed past tremendous obstacles in their pursuit of higher education. The Trustees also provide them with a $100 check.
The Trustees will then nominate one of the students to the state Transforming Lives Awards, and that nominee may receive an additional $500. The statewide program is held later this year in Olympia, WA.
