Elwyn Johnston came to Centralia College as a Running Start student from Oakville High School.
After he graduated in 2011 from Oakville, Johnston received a scholarship to attend Centralia College, and is working toward his Associate in Arts degree. He is also involved in campus life having been elected to the student government where he is the senator for Student Relations.
“I have had a lot of great experiences here at the college serving on student government,” Johnston said. In addition to responsibilities with student government, Johnston enjoys snowboarding and is a member of the college’s Ski Club.
When asked why he thought a college education is important, Elwyn said, “Education is important because under the right circumstances it can give people a much better perspective on life.
“I have found the faculty and staff to be most helpful and everyone here is super friendly. I would recommend Centralia College to anyone looking to go to college. Community colleges are great at giving students their first two years of college at an affordable price. With our smaller class sizes, you can get to know your teachers more easily than at a large university,” he added.
