Humans of PCC: Gareld Gedrose
“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”
