Pacific Gas and Electric presented Cerro Coso Community College with a $5,000 grant to promote its student outreach. Vice President of Student Services Heather Ostash said the grant allowed the college to hold its first open house, which allowed new students to complete the registration and orientation process in one day and provides ongoing funding and support for outreach to new and special populations of students. PG&E Community Relations Representative Kristen Doud said the company has had education partnerships in Kern County for several years. "When we got the opportunity to support the important work being done to ensure the continuing student success at Cerro Coso Community College, we jumped at the opportunity," she said. PG&E's investment in our students helps shape their time on our campus and their future success. Thank you PG&E for considering us as your philanthropic choice and for making a difference in the lives of CCCC students.
