Jeanne M. Van Ochten and Wayne W. Adams Scholarship
Jeanne M. Van Ochten is a member of the first graduating class of Delta College, receiving her associate’s degree in 1962. Her father had an eighth-grade education and her mother graduated from high school. She and her twin sister, Joyce, were the first in their family to attend college. A scholarship to Delta changed her life, and she and her husband, Wayne W. Adams, wish to pass on this opportunity for growth to others.
Ms. Van Ochten said that – had she not had the valuable beginning that a Delta College scholarship gave here, and the supportive academic counseling and the excellent instructors that Delta provided – she would not have been able to tread the path of the satisfying career and rewarding personal experiences that she has had for many years. She is eternally grateful to Delta College.
