Right C3 is proud to announce our Grand Prize winner for the scholarship contest for our 2020 graduating class. Katelyn Riley-O’Connor is the winner this year and will receive a $500 scholarship. In the fall she will attend Binghamton University and pursue a degree in geological sciences.
Katelyn is most excited about having new experiences and receiving a hands-on education. This college was a good fit due to its location and well-established geology program. Ultimately, she would like to be involved at Binghamton in a big way. She is excited to join clubs, work on-campus, and maybe even become a Resident Assistant in a dorm.
Ever since she was young, Katelyn was always collecting rocks. She found herself doing experiments with them and became fascinated with Earth Science. She excelled in the classes and her interest level grew. She was even able to do some extra work in the classes through teaching about Geology. Through her hard work she even earned college credit.
Katelyn appreciated Right C3 and the assistance she received.She appreciated the “sweet reminders” about certain steps in the college admissions process. She enjoyed chatting with coaches through our website. We were able to assist her through her process with the QuestBridge application. Though she was not selected at the end, she made it to be a QuestBridge finalist!
Katelyn encourages our younger clients to dream big and work hard to get there. She knows how important it is to have a strong drive and to discover what you love to do. She was diligent to meet her goals so far and the Geology program at Binghamton is her next step. Her determination and confidence are inspiring. We wish her the best!
