What CC Has Meant to Me:
"The Colorado College experience has afforded me the skills, support and experience necessary to become a critical scholar and an engaged member of the community. I have had incredible professors beginning with my very first block and continuing now into my senior year. They have challenged my assumptions and sparked lifelong passions. My experience inside and outside the classroom at CC has inspired me to continue my study of feminist and gender studies at graduate school. I plan to obtain my PhD in hopes of becoming a professor. My scholarship made this possible for me."
Who Opened the Door for Marley?
Marley is a recipient of the Robert J. Cosgrove Memorial Scholarship.
Robert Cosgrove, class of 1949, was a former scholarship student and established this scholarship through a bequest. He expressed his hopes that his legacy could be used in part to provide financial aid for worthy students.
Robert was a Montana native and an English major. In 1956, he joined the Spokane Washington Chronicle. Robert retired as a copy editor in 1987. He died in 1991, but his legacy continues strong still today.
