Student of the Month!!

student of the month

Meet our student of the month, Alexandra (Sasha) Tarasova, from Russia! Sasha arrived in the fall of 2015 at the age of 16. Her goal is to major in broadcasting and transfer to UCLA or UC Berkeley. Before Green River College, Sasha attended the EF Academy in New York for her sophomore year of high school. It was there that she heard about Green River College’s High School Completion Plus program and that she could get her high school diploma and earn college credits at the same time. Washington State is the only state that offers this program to students at the age of 16.
