“I want to make the culinary and hospitality programs at RCBC the best in the state. I plan to connect with local businesses and create partnerships and collaborations. I will be looking at organizing events and competitions in the culinary building in the near future. In addition, I have plans to bring in visiting chefs to present demonstrations for students.”

“I am fortunate enough to have amazing parents who already have given a great deal so that I have the opportunity to follow my dreams, but with this scholarship, it certainly lightens the load on my behalf and only influences me to keep going for it,” Buckalew shared. “I am extremely thankful!”

“By studying and working in the U.S., I improved my skills as a professional and learned what it means to be culturally humble and the importance of patient advocacy,” Boknov said. “I have no doubt it was all my professors' help that made the difference. The tips they taught me will help throughout my nursing career."

“Something I've always talked about was how great of a time I had at RCBC because I think the staff do a good job of making everyone feel included. The events were always my favorite thing. You walk outside of class, and there was always something going on -- a bouncy house, goat yoga, etc. It was very nice to see that because I didn’t have that image of college in my head. It just felt like a community. That’s what I feel like is very present in those events -- you could tell people really care.”

“From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease,” Hernandez recalled. “Not only was the campus in my hometown, but it offered friendly teachers and staff, great vibes from the students and exceptional education. The minds of the teachers are brilliant, and they work hard to ensure their students have the best schooling that they could provide. Another reason why I chose RCBC was because it was a perfect starting point for me to get my feet wet and learn more about college expectations. It offered me the flexibility to focus on a full-time job while still attending school. It turned out that RCBC was the best choice for me, and I highly recommend it for other individuals looking to get a great education.”

“I knew RCBC had a wonderful culinary and pastry program, so that was one of the reasons I wanted to go to RCBC compared to other schools in the area,” Seguin said. “Plus, I took out loans and going to RCBC really helped keep costs down.”

DeCarolis, a self-proclaimed “workaholic,” has spent the last 14 years at her job at a Philadelphia-area financial institution. During that time, she honed her supervisory skills while working her way up the ladder and coming to the realization that business was her forte.
