De Anza Carolee Erickson Memorial ICC Scholarship
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 Chairperson for the 1995-96 school year. After her term was completed, cancer that had been in remission returned. She completed her A.A. degree from De Anza College in 1997 despite declining health and received the President’s Award for overcoming adversity. She received her diploma in a wheelchair.

The ICC scholarship was renamed in her honor.
