Local Hart Graduate Raising Funds for College
When Roxanne Phen, 18, realized that the $6,000 in college scholarships she earned from local Santa Clarita organizations would only pay a small portion of her college tuition and expenses, she turned to the World Wide Web to raise the additional dollars needed.
Phen created her own website this week - www.educatingrox.com. Roxanne, a Hart graduate, is planning to attend Claremont McKenna College this fall. With tuition and housing cost totaling $45,000 per year, she will need a total of $180,000 to complete her studies and receive a bachelor’s degree. She plans to major in Philosophy, Politics and economics and has designs on getting an MBA and a pursuing a career in Sports Management. She will be the first in her family to attend college.
