“I examined several college majors, but have settled on my true passion, teaching. I want to give to students what JCF gave to me: leadership, passion to help others, and confidence in myself. Now I can pass this on to a new generation of students, helping improve the quality of their lives.”~ Ashley Pendleton, Oregon State University

because through JCF I learned how to balance a budget, and how
