The Foundation's main fundraising event is the Gala, held each year in spring. This event has been successful in raising the much-needed funds to assist students with scholarships, financial emergency assistance and special projects.
Jemimah Kamau already knew at age seven what she wanted to be when she grew up. Raised in Kenya, she witnessed many social injustices that sparked her passion to become an attorney and give a voice to silenced communities. With her family financially struggling, Jemimah picked tea plants and tended crops to keep her dream alive and fund her education
In fall 2011, Jemimah took a leap of faith and moved to Washington State with her sister and enrolled in pre-law classes at Highline College. Although her family could not financially support her, she knew this is where she needed to be to achieve her dreams. "I must rely on scholarships to fund my education as an international student, which is a huge challenge," she admits. Jemimah was awarded the Ruth Reilly merit-based scholarship to ensure that the costs of education didn’t hold her back.
At Highline, she maintains a 3.88 GPA and was chosen to represent Highline on the 2013 All-Washington Academic Team. "I thank the Highline Foundation for the opportunities that financial awards have provided me, and I also thank the donors for supporting dreams and goals of needy students at Highline."
As the primary fundraising entity for the college, all dollars raised through the foundation go directly to support students and culturally-diverse program efforts. Although there is state support for the College, it is not enough to adequately meet the needs of our students.
