Carolyn Dennis

Program Associate - Scholarship Outreach and Selection

Postsecondary Success

“It’s a privilege to see how students and Scholars love to give back and pay forward – it fuels our team with great energy, purpose, and optimism for a bright future.”

Carolyn Dennis brings more than two decades of college admissions and enrollment experience in Oregon higher education to The Ford Family Foundation. Her passion for student success shows in the way she connects with high school and college access advisors, partner organizations and students to help make a path to college doable.

Each scholarship application season, Carolyn encourages students to apply through outreach communications, shares resources, offers tips, and answers questions to facilitate the process every step of the way for students and their families. She participates in applicant selection and joins her Ford Family colleagues in celebration of the exceptional students who are awarded a Ford Family Foundation scholarship.

Outside of work, you might find Carolyn with her family combing the beach or rockhounding in Central and Southeastern Oregon searching for “rock of the day,” creating one-of-a-kind jewelry, or baking which is her love language for family and friends.
