"I'M GOING TO COLLEGE" BRINGS 5TH GRADERS TO CERRO COSO CAMPUS
March 30, 2011
On April 5 and 6, 2011 Cerro Coso Community College will host area 5th graders as part of their "I'm Going to College" program. Children from all over the valley will tour the college and enjoy a fun-filled day of activities, which will included demonstrations by Cerro Coso faculty; Debby Kurti, Larry Board, Tom Heck, Kim Kelly, Julie Cornett and John Stenger-Smith. To top off the day, the student will receive a great lunch provided by Subway and Stater Bros.
The day will begin with a personal "Welcome" from the College Vice President of Academic Affairs, Rick Post, and Vice President of Student Services, Heather Ostash. Cerro Coso student ambassadors, baseball players, and Associated Student Body members will give the children guided tours of the IWV campus.
"The I'm Going to College event is a great opportunity for area children to learn about the wonderful things Cerro Coso has to offer, both academically and athletically.
It's a fun-filled energizing day for everyone - the children, our students, administrators, instructors, and staff," stated College President, Jill Board.
"We began this program a number of years ago to expose children to the college experience and to encourage them to go to college.
It's never too early to start planning for the future," concluded Board.
To help make this event a success donations were received from the Rotary Club and Stater Brothers of Ridgecrest.
