2018 Valedictorian Receives Transfer Scholarship
Ibrahim Ibrahim is the 2017-18 Phoenix College valedictorian and recipient of the Diane Thomas Scholarship, a $10,000 scholarship for students transferring to a four-year college or university.
Ibrahim graduated from PC with an Associate of Science degree on May 11, and will attend ASU in the fall to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in biology and biomedical research. He plans to eventually become a research physician majoring in virology.
Paying Back His Community
Ibrahim, who is originally from Ethiopia and has overcome great obstacles to pursue his education, says his long-term goal is to work with a research team developing cures for third world diseases to alleviate human suffering. He is also excited about working with under-resourced rural American communities, especially in free health clinics and children’s hospitals.
