EWU McNair Scholar Terreca DeFehr Receives Eagles for Recovery Scholarship

Terreca Defehr Receives Eagles for Recovery ScholarshipCongratulations to incoming EWU McNair Scholar Terreca DeFehr! Terreca was selected by the scholarship committee as an awardee for the Eagles for Recovery Scholarship. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must hold a minimum 3.0 grade point average and have at least 3 months of abstinence from alcohol and substance use or process addiction issues such as gambling or shopping.

Terreca writes of her experience:

As a non-traditional student, I first entered into education for my GED the first time I got sober. Fast forward seventeen years, and here is what I have learned about my education and recovery: I do not have one without another. I started my education journey because of my sobriety; I have learned in-depth about addiction, trauma behaviors, and how I can support addicts with an authentic understanding from experience and education and continue to heal because of my education.

We are delighted to have Terreca, a psychology major, as a part of our new 2022-2023 cohort!
