Astraia Pulliam Memorial Scholarship Fund for Nursing


(2019) Astraia Pulliam grew up in the town of Bonny Doon in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California. A bright and vibrant life, she set forth to spread the gift of health and healing, becoming a yoga instructor in San Francisco for several years. Along her journey she was blessed to become a mother to her cherished first born son. Her ambition to help heal never ceased, leading her to move to Humboldt County and attended College of the Redwoods nursing program. While raising her young son as a single mother, she completed her nursing degree in 2014. She started work on the Medical Surgical Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she quickly gained a reputation as a dedicated and tender nurse who cared and advocated for all of her patients with loving kindness. One of her signature traits was her bright red lipstick. Astraia was the kind of nurse who went above and beyond, buying red lipstick for a patient who was in need of cheering up. Astraia was a beautiful person who had an amazing personality, a strong will, an infectious laugh and a smile that would make your day. She would smile her beautiful red lips at the thought that this scholarship is helping single moms achieve their goal of becoming nurses.

Vellis Family Endowment Fund


(2019) This fund was created with the remainder of the Charitable Remainder Trust established by Lewis and Jane Vellis in 2000. The fund serves two distinct educational goals. While one objective assists students directly, the other benefits a community college. The first area of interest is to provide scholarships for juniors and seniors in high school served by College of the Redwoods and its branches. The intent is to expand their curricula so that they can become adults in the workforce, motivated to attain a higher level of proficiency and work toward a stated goal. This opportunity may continue through a bachelor's degree in a state college. The second purpose is to assist the Santa Barbara City College Continuing Education Division to develop and sustain courses and seminar series featuring nationally known speakers, primarily in the field of transitional psychology such as the "Mind/Supermind" series.

Geri van Emmerik Memorial Scholarship


(2018) Geri van Emmerik counseled thousands of students—and friends—throughout her career in education. To every meeting and workshop, Geri brought an unmatched energy, thinking through every detail, treating each situation as though it were the most important she ever attended. Geri’s passion, innovation, and conviction demonstrated the depth of concern she held for each student whether they sought a job or a college degree. Our dreams were hers, and Geri took whatever time necessary to help—she was always there for us. Geri’s devotion was transcendent. And to her friends and family, Geri was a charismatic, funny, brilliant, and generous woman with a knack for knowing when you needed a pep talk, a helping hand, an ear to bend, or a delicious cookie. To commemorate Geri’s friendship and dedication to students chasing their dreams, this scholarship will be awarded to a McKinleyville High School senior planning on any post–high school training or college.
