A beloved counselor and friend of Rio Salado College left behind a wonderful legacy. Sherry Lichte-Baird had a passion for helping students succeed and find new career paths. She also had a passion for training and assisting Counseling and Personal Development (CPD) instructors and part-time counselors. 

The Sherry Lichte-Baird Career Scholarship is available to students who have successfully completed CPD115 Creating College Success or CPD150 Strategies for College Success and have returned to school for a career change.

You can apply for this scholarship through the new Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation application interface at https://maricopa.academicworks.com. Type "Rio Salado College" into the search engine to see a listing of all college scholarship opportunities. 

Please note, you must submit the General Application before you apply for additional scholarships by clicking on the Sign In button in the upper right-hand corner of the web page.

Once you complete the General Application you will still need to submit an additional application for the Sherry Lichte-Baird Career Scholarship.

Please take advantage of this opportunity and submit your application by November 15.

While Sherry is greatly missed, her incredible example and inspirational passion for student success lives on.
