Andrew Teixeira

Andrew Teixeira has known PCC was the place for him since Grant Coffee from PCC’s Fire Protection Technology program visited his high school chemistry class. Andrew was able to go on a ride along, and he’s been hooked ever since.

Already, he’s done an internship with Clark County Fire and Rescue and plans to someday become a hazardous material technician and technical rescue technician in addition to being a firefighter. Eventually, he may pursue a bachelor’s degree in fire engineering at Eastern Oregon University.

Of his PCC Foundation scholarship, he says, "It’s helped immensely. It’s going to put another firefighter out in the world."
