Meet Jake Avilla
Jake Avilla is a future secondary high school teacher focusing on Health Science. He is a Student Ambassador, a first generation student, and a participant of TRIO Student Support Services. He chose EvCC because it is close to home, has affordable tuition, and provides a strong sense of community.
“I decided to go to college to be the change I want to see in the education system,” said Jake. “I am a strong believer that if you want to make a change in the world, you have to be the one that does it.”
Legislative Priority: Expand Opportunity for Students and Employers
Fully funding our budget requests will have real returns for students like Jake Avilla and for the communities and employers in our area. Students will learn from competitively-paid experts who choose to work at EvCC rather than pursue higher paying positions with private employers or K-12 schools. Our students will train for careers in robust workforce programs, with modern equipment and learning spaces that mirror their future work environments. We will be able to expand technology to bring a college education to more people in more ways, which is especially important for working adults. And, all our students will benefit from an inclusive environment where they are valued, supported and equipped to reach their goals. Everett Community College will also receive funding to operate and maintain existing facilities and to design and build both its Baker Hall replacement and its Student and Family Resource Center.
