Congratulations to our 2012 Scholarship Winners!

RickyI am Richard Barella Jr. and my Mom and Dad are Sheri and Rick Barella Sr., My Grandmother is Joyce LaCoursiere – Hudson, and my great-grandfather is the late Theophil LaCoursiere.
I live in Longview, Washington and will be commuting to Washington State University in Vancouver where I will be double-majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in order to be more employable. My plan is to pursue a career in Software Engineering to increase productivity of business through the development and optimization of computer software applications.
I am 18 years old and graduated from Mark Morris High School and Lower Columbia College (LCC) at the same time through the Running Start Program in June 2012. At LCC, I graduated with an Associate in Sciences-Transfer Degree in Computer Science with a 3.77 GPA on a 4.0 scale and received the “Outstanding Student Award” in Physics. Along with these accomplishments, I received the rank of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts of America on June 16th 2012. My activities have been Swim Team, Water Polo, Tennis Team, Bits & Bots FIRST Robotics Team, and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). In Robotics, our team came in 3rd place out of 64 competitors in Seattle, WA. Along with these activities, I have also been involved in community service through my church and through Boy Scouts. My Eagle Project was a service project which organized the children’s section of the Longview Public Library by shifting books and making shelf-labels.
The Lacours/ciere Society’s Scholarship provides financial assistant towards my completion of a strong educational program at Washington State University (WSU) in Vancouver, Washington and assists me in achieve a career in software engineering. The funds will be used to further my education which will allow me to become a leader in the next generation of world changers. I will become a man who can make a difference through knowledge and problem solving.
I chose WSU Vancouver to complete my Bachelor’s degree because I am able to commute from Longview to Vancouver (WA.) while living with my family which will decrease the financial burden of yearly college costs generated from room and board expenses. Although I have already gone through great measures to help myself with college expenses, there are still many more expenses in college and I need financial assistance from scholarships for the completion of my degree. The Lacours/ciere Society helps me pursue the education I need to give back to the community through engineering and science.

My name is Marc Gaudette and I am the son of Yvette & Michel Gaudette, who are in good standing with the Lacours/cière Society. I am the grandson of the late Aldina (Lacoursière) & Gérard Serré. I have most recently completed my 3rd year at the University of Windsor, where I am enrolled in the Human Kinetics program. I am a full-time student majoring in Sports Management. During the past school year (2 semesters) I have attained a grade point average of 7.9 out of 13, which is roughly around 70-73%. This past school year was a challenge for me. I made the transition from College to University. Both semesters were filled with ups and downs. There were stressful times and even times when I questioned whether continuing on to University was the right decision. Through this roller-coaster year I managed to keep my head up and continued to show up and work hard in the classroom. In the second term I seemed to find my groove and gained back the confidence I had in College where I was very successful. I was able to demonstrate my leadership abilities through various group projects. In these group projects I took control and made sure our group was on schedule and that nothing was left to the last minute. I feel very confident and capable when I’m in control and leading. This leadership ability is something that I’ve developed over the years of maturation and I am very proud to be a quiet yet confident leader. This scholarship would be a great asset to me. Should I be the recipient of the scholarship I will use the money towards the purchase of a parking pass along with textbooks for my upcoming year of school. The financial assistance of the scholarship will be great however I believe there is more to it than the money. Receiving this scholarship will give me an added incentive to continue applying myself in my schoolwork and it will motivate me in my last year. This money will keep me working hard to maintain a high grade point average and potentially get into teacher’s college. The monies being offered by the Lacours/cière Society, would be greatly appreciated by me and well spent. I thank you the members of the Scholarship Committee for considering my application.
