2019 – Cheri’ Ben-Iesau
Cheri’ Ben-Iesau is an artist, a U.S. veteran, and a California Native whose parents are both artists—a trait Cheri inherited. She served in the U.S. Coast Guard and now, in a complete shift of careers, is pursuing a degree at Delgado Community College in New Orleans, Louisiana, that will allow her to express her creativity in a big way, while also helping shape her community.
College is expensive and the debt can be discouraging. It can be a barrier to seeking education in the first place, or a burden a graduate may carry for years. This scholarship will help me to graduate as close to debt-free as possible, freeing me up to focus on my education rather than my finances. I am most grateful to House Method for the help you have given me and for the contribution to furthering education for all the people who have benefited from your generosity.
