News Release
Chemeketa Community College Athlete Libby Grogan Receives Prominent Ford Family Foundation Transfer Scholarship (Photo) - 05/22/23

Grogan's academic achievements earned her full financial support at the University of Oregon


Salem, Ore., May 22, 2023 — Chemeketa Community College distance track athlete Libby Grogan has been honored with the Ford Family Foundation Transfer Scholarship. This scholarship will cover all of Grogan's college expenses at the University of Oregon over the next two years, marking a significant occasion in her academic journey. Among a select group of 25 high-performing community college students under the age of 25, Grogan will transfer to a full-time bachelor's degree program.


Grogan graduated as the salutatorian of Silverton High School's class of 2022 with a 3.98 GPA. Now, at Chemeketa Community College, she continues to excel academically, currently maintaining a 4.0 GPA and earning a place on the President's List. She will complete her Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree in one year. Along with her academic achievements, Grogan competes on the Chemeketa track team. On May 22-23, 2023, she will compete at the NWAC Championships in the 10,000-meter race, at Mt. Hood Community College.


Grogan expressed gratitude for Chemeketa Community College's supportive environment during the transition from high school to college. "College has been different from high school, and Chemeketa has made that transition easier for me," she shared. "It's been amazing to start college at a cost-effective community college. It's been hard to meet people socially, but my involvement in athletics has helped me a lot. My teammate Maddy Mitzel has made the team so much fun, and I couldn't do it without her!"


Despite its small size, the track and field team is a tight-knit and successful team. Coach Robert Yates, who recently joined the team, expressed pride in Grogan's accomplishments. "I am so excited for Libby's achievement both on the track and as a student," said Coach Yates. "The scholarship is truly well-deserved."


As Grogan prepares to graduate from Chemeketa Community College and embark on a new chapter at the University of Oregon, she is ready to make an impact as she pursues her ambitions through higher education.
