Pensacola State College Academic Coordinator for Veterans Upward Bound, John E. Woods, has worked at the College for nearly four years. During those four years, John has continuously chosen to go above and beyond for students by contributing from his own pocket to scholarships at the PSC Foundation. John explains why he is passionate about giving back:
“I choose to donate to the PSC Foundation as a way of paying it forward. I was able to take advantage of the G.I. Bill and scholarships while obtaining my education. The Foundation provides me an avenue to help others reach their educational goals too. Through the Foundation, I can invest in the lives of students just as others invested in me during my educational journey. I love that PSC offers many opportunities to grow. I have a saying ‘Learn to Grow, Grow to Learn.’ PSC allows me opportunities to continue my learning growth while helping others, especially Veterans, to do the same.”
