Submitted By Patricia Russell
Chabot College student Jessica Quiroga of Castro Valley recently won a $1,500 Elaine McCune Scholarship from the Northern California Chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA), and has been awarded membership in the organization.
Gary M. Carter, dean of Chabot College's School of the Arts, extended his congratulations and described Quiroga as an "energetic and innovative entrepreneur." He noted that she is also president of the Interior Design Club and "has been hard at work completing her 160-hour Interior Design internship, has started her own staging company, and was selected as this year's Outstanding Interior Design Student."
The Interior Design Program at Chabot College, which offers both day and evening classes, is planned to prepare individuals for entry and intermediate level positions in interior design firms, home furnishings retail stores, and wholesale showrooms for the design industry.
Interior Design students can work toward transfering to a four-year college and earn an Associate in Science Degree, Certificate of Achievement, and Certificate in Kitchen and Bathroom Design.
For more information about the program, contact Barbara Daher, interior design instructor, at BDaher@chabotcollege.edu , or (510) 723-6829.
