The Serve, Earn and Learn (SEAL) Scholarship Program at Oregon Coast Community College is now entering its third year. This year, there are 10 students who are being mentored by instructors and/or staff at OCCC. The students complete on-campus educational service assignments in the nursing skills lab, science labs, tutoring center, small business development, student services, library, and facilities departments and the library. Their assignments promote learning, foster career development, increase student success, and provide an incentive for students to complete their educational goals, while relieving loan debt.

JoAnn and Bill Barton started the SEAL Scholarship Program to bring hope to OCCC students now and into the future. Because of their belief in the power of education, they made a donation of $300,000 to the OCCC Foundation, with $280,000 set aside as an endowment fund to perpetuate the Barton Family Serve, Earn and Learn (SEAL) Scholarship Program.
