Earl Deskada wants to major in Hotel Management.

Earl Deskada is from Thailand.  He started at GRCC in the fall of 2009 as an Intensive English as a Second Language level 4 student and transferred into the Academic program in the spring of 2010. 

"Green River has really helped me to mature in many ways," said Earl. When arrived he was only 17 and did not know how sign up for classes,  cook, do laundry.  "Back home everything was done for me." confessed Earl.

Earl is now a confident 19 year old.  He is taking 20 credits, has a 3.6 GPA and initatied the first Thai Student Club on campus.  The Thai Club now has 15 members.  The club volunteers get together cook and find ways to volunteer in the community.  Last month they performed at the Asia Pacific Cultural Center and more recently Earl spearheaded efforts to raise money for flood victims in his homeland of Thailand.

Earl plans to graduate at the end of winter or spring quarter and major in Hotel Management. He would like to transfer to University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) where they are known for their outstanding hospitality program.
