Meet the WCC Ambassadors
Hello! My name is Barbara Kolby. I'm beginning my second year at Whatcom Community College in pursuit of a career in nursing. When not engaged with classes, my interests are quilting, gardening, kayaking, race walking, and hiking. I share my home with two basenjis and one enormous cat. Welcome to our beautiful, friendly campus with faculty and advisors that care about you.
Hello! My name is David Aguilar, and I am one of nine siblings in my family. I am a freshman at WCC and am hoping to finish a Business Management degree at WWU. I am also a veteran from the United States Marine Corp. I like doing many things, from bowling to snowboarding, playing chess to just relaxing in the sun. I recently learned about leadership skills at a conference in Wenatchee, so if you have any questions about Student Life, please do not hesitate to ask me.
Hello! My name is Faith Foster and I returned to WCC last winter after 20 years. I am completing my transfer associates degree so that I can study Chinese medicine at Bastyr in Seattle. I currently work part time in the Career Center (come in and say hi!), and am President of the Life-Long Learners Club. In my spare time I enjoy playing my dulcimer, love to be outside doing anything and getting together with friends and family. I look forward to meeting new people on campus and hope everyone enjoys their adventure here as much as I am.
Hi! My name is Koichi Hirata, and I am an international student at WCC. This is technically my third year, and I am currently studying for a major in Mathematics. I always enjoy meeting and having conversations with new people. I worked on the Programming and Diversity Board and at the Office of Student Life this last school year. If you are interested in getting involved in Student Life or learning significant skills such as leadership, communication, or diversity, I will be able to answer your questions.
Hello there! My name is Moisé Payne, and this year will be my sophomore year attending Whatcom Community College. I’m studying French and International Business, and plan to transfer to Western Washington University. I want to travel around the world, and I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them well. I love biking, listening to music and spending time with my family and friends. It’s a pleasure to be a Student Ambassador at such an awesome college.
Hi! My name is Sarah Miller and this is my second year as a Running Start student at WCC. I'm currently on track to graduate in June, and hope to transfer to Seattle Pacific University in the fall to study theater. Besides school, I enjoy volunteering, singing, church activities, and being involved with theater in Whatcom County. I am so excited for the coming year and all the new opportunities and people that will be coming my way as well as the chance to share with others how much Whatcom has to offer. Hope your time here is great!
