Meet Vladyslav Boiko

Vladyslav Boiko is an International Student from the Ukraine studying IT Programming at Green River College. This has been his desire from a young age, and after studying in his home country, he knew he wanted to finish his studies in the United States, where he could get the best education possible. He has been creating websites for small companies and individuals to obtain more experience in the field of study. He plans to transfer to a four-year university in the US to complete his studies.

Legislative Priority: Expand Opportunity for Students and Employers

Fully funding our budget requests will have real returns for students like Vladyslav Boiko and for the communities and employers in our area. Students will learn from competitively-paid experts who choose to work at Green River College 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.
