Carolee Erickson was a non-traditional student returning to school after raising a family as a single parent and grandmother and working in the jewelry business. She was involved in the Baha’I Club, future Teachers Club, and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society before becoming ICC Chair in 1995-96. After her term was completed, cancer that had been in remission returned. She completed her AA in 1997 despite declining health and received the President’s Award. She received her diploma in a wheelchair. She died a few months after graduation before completing her goal of transferring to UC Berkeley as a Secondary Education major and teaching English and History in inner city schools. The ICC scholarship was renamed in her honor.
