After Kelly Brown graduated high school in 1992, she thought that she would never want to go back to school. Years later she found herself juggling full-time work and family duties while taking college classes to pursue a degree at PWSC. Though it took her longer to complete a degree, she finally did it! In an interview, she said "Do not let the thought of going back to school overwhelm you. You can take your time. You do not have to finish your degree in two years. Do what is right for you!"

Jared Bowden grew up in Valdez. As a UA Scholar, he was awarded a $12,000 scholarship that he is using towards the cost of his education. The UA Scholar Award is given to students designated in the top 10% of their Alaska high school class at the end of their junior year. Jared decided PWSC was the best choice for him, stating, “…I'm looking at the financial aspects of it. I feel this was a good choice because I didn't really know what degree I wanted to get right out of high school. And I feel it was a good choice to go to a smaller school to get an idea of how college worked, without instantly dealing with a lot of financial pressure…”
