They do this by supporting student scholarships, the Cerro Coso Promise, Campus Hunger FREE program, student programs and activities on campus like Phi Theta Kappa, and professional development for employees. “We couldn't do what we do without the support of our foundation and the generous donations of private individuals, businesses, and organizations,” said College President Jill Board.  “It's a game changer.”
