    Student Ambassador - Carlie Sloan

    Carlie Sloan

    Carlie was born and raised here in southern Colorado. She is a US Army National Guard veteran who has lived in quite a few places graduating high school including Texas, and Hawaii. Last year she graduated from Intellitec with a Cosmetology license. After working in the field a few months,she realized it was more of a hobby than it was a career. “I have always had a greater appreciation for education. There were times that the only people I had to talk to were teachers within the school I attended and my hope is to be the one teacher that can help anyone who needs it.”

    Carlie’s goal at PCC is to make a difference for those who wish to further their education, and be able to help those who need just a bit more encouragement to get them going in a path to better their lives.

    Student Ambassador - Erika Springer

    Erika Springer

    Erika is a new student ambassador who moved to Colorado in 2010 with her son.

    After several years in Pueblo/Pueblo West, while working small jobs here and there, she realized they were leading her nowhere. She decided to attend PCC to make a change towards a better life for her and her family. Her compassion for others is one of the many qualities that she possesses. She enjoys listening and offering advice when given the opportunity. She is very personable and always smiling.

    Her goal at PCC, and in life, is to be the very best that she can be and be encouraging to all the people she meets.
