The TACTC Transforming Lives Awards recognize current or former students whose lives have been transformed by attending a Washington state community or technical college.  The TACTC Awards Committee selects five keynote speakers from nominations submitted by the Washington community and technical colleges.

All 34 awardees are invited to attend, at TACTC’s expense, the TACTC Legislative Contact Conference on January 28, 2015, at the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia, where they are honored during the Transforming Lives Awards Dinner.  Five awardees will be the featured speakers and will receive a $500 cash award from TACTC.

2015 awardees, in alphabetical order by college, are:

  • Raymond Power, Bates Technical College
  • Chester Curtis, Edmonds Community College
  • Angela Gates, Lower Columbia College
  • Yadira Rosales, Skagit Valley College
