Humans of PCC: Gareld Gedrose

By Bridge Staff|February 7, 2016Student Writing|

“I was born and raised in the Portland area (born in Oregon City, raised in Lake Oswego).  After the service I attended PCC Sylvania for a short time and then moved on, eventually getting my BAS from PSU.  I entered the graduate program and did some volunteer teaching at Oregon State Prison, the Women’s Prison and what used to be the youth prison. I left PSU and landed in law school at Northwestern, Lewis and Clark. From 1980 to 2015 I practiced law emphasizing Criminal Defense in the tri-county area. To help make ends meet I dug ditches, drove a petroleum tanker and whatever else I could find. The ditch digging was easily the worst job I ever had”

“I retired from the practice job law in 2015 and decided to rediscover photography. I qualified for reduced tuition at PCC and began auditing classes in 2015. All in all I am having the time of my life. The instructors are great, the equipment is terrific and I could not ask for more support”

Mr. Gedrose previously contributed to The Bridge by submitting his photography for use on our website, and his photograph “Steen’s Mountain” was featured in a previous paper edition.
