Endowment Showcase: Hangland/Middagh
Red Hangland
Red Hangland and the
2007 Scholarship recipient
Katie King

When Ron "Red" Hangland hears the words "Play Ball", he takes them seriously. Red and his wife, Billie, are not only avid ball players; their love of the game has transcended the next generation. Their granddaughters, Casey and Randi Middagh, have both made indelible imprints on Clackamas Community College's softball team.


While Billie enjoyed her softball heyday and moved on to other interests such as art, Red's involvement and enthusiasm for the game have remained strong. Red has played on an Oregon slow-pitch team at the World Senior Games and won World Series titles in the World Senior Softball Association. 


The Hangland/Middagh Endowment funds student employment opportunities in the Athletic Department for deserving CCC softball players.

I first came to CCC in 2003-04 to take a few automotive classes, so I could take the ASE test and further my career as an automotive master tech. When I started the classes, I was told about the scholarship opportunities through the Foundation so I decided to apply. I was awarded the Niemeyer Scholarship as well as the B29 automotive scholarship which allowed me to purchase the tools I needed. Getting these scholarships also provided the money to take more classes, and I decided to go for my degree. I graduated in 2006 with a 3.95 cumulative GPA; a fact that I am very proud of because I was never a good student and never finished high school. I went on to take all eight (8) ASE tests and became Master Certified. I had finally accomplished something positive in my life, and I had a new vision that I can accomplish what I put my mind to.
I decided to start my own business in 2007. As of today, I have expanded the business to three locations. After the first couple years in business, I had some extra money and wanted to give back to the college. I wanted to help a deserving student change their vision and outlook, and possibly their families too. I am living proof of the effect these scholarships have on families. My sister saw my achievement and started school in 2006 and has now received her BSN in Nursing.
When I heard that I was being considered to be part of the Foundation Board, I jumped at the chance to help raise friends and funds for new students. I also think it would be so cool to inspire some of the people that received scholarships in their time of financial need to think about giving back that gift to another student. It feels amazing, or at least it did for me. This is why I am involved, and I am excited to be part of the CCC Foundation.
I'll leave you with my favorite quote. "Never underestimate just how awesome you are." 
CRT Presents" "Kiss Me Kate"
Playbill for Kiss Me Kate
August 1 - 25
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
The Osterman Theatre in the Niemeyer Center
Clackamas Community College

Kiss Me Kate builds a cheerfully farcical backstage plot around a second rate theatre company's musical production of The Taming Of The Shrew, starring divorced, but still madly in love Broadway legends Lilly Vanessi and Fred Graham. Insert an ambitious, love-struck dancer, her jealous boyfriend, a bit of blackmail and two none-too-bright gangsters and you have an evening of silly, frothy fun complete with crackling dance numbers and such tunes as "Too Darn Hot," "Another Op'nin,' Another Show," "Wunderbar," "I'm Always True to You in My Fashion," and Brush Up Your Shakespeare."

Tickets may be purchased at or by calling 503-594-6047.
