New Learning Center Technician Heather Bopp is a familiar face around the Kern River Valley (KRV) Lake Isabella Campus.
A current student, Bopp will graduate from the college in May of 2016 with an Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts - Arts and Humanities. She has been performing clerical work as a student at the KRV Campus under a state funded work experience program since 2013.
Bopp says working on campus as a student helped her keep her focus on academics as a priority, enhanced her education with real world experience, and kept her engaged with the campus community. She loves the encouraging and supportive environment at Cerro Coso’s KRV Campus and the positive impact the college has on the local community. Her favorite part of her new job is the one-on-one contact with students. “I’m excited to be a permanent part of the team and a positive influence on students” she said.
A native of Granada Hills in the San Fernando Valley, Bopp has had occasion to live in Texas, Tennessee, and Nevada before landing in Lake Isabella in 2012 to be closer to her parents. She has three daughters, identical twins Paige and Shelby (7) and Jean (10). Together they enjoy Western and English horseback riding, a hobby that consumes most of their spare time. Eventually, Bopp hopes to complete her Bachelor’s Degree but is currently undecided on a major.
The Learning Assistance Center and Learning Resource Center on campus provide valuable support services for students enrolled in academic and vocational courses.
Cerro Coso congratulates Heather on her new position at the college.
