On Thursday, March 5, 2020, the Cerro Coso Community College (CCCC) Foundation will host a President’s Circle brunch from 9 to 10 a.m. in the College Community Room located on the third floor of the Main Building.
Guests will be given an opportunity to hear first-hand from Cerro Coso student leaders showcasing their extraordinary work.
The President’s Circle ensures and expands the College’s ability to advance education opportunities for future leaders. The CCCC Foundation is active in many areas and always pursuing new partnerships, its main focus is making the Cerro Coso Promise Scholarship Program sustainable and more robust. Launched in 2018, the Cerro Coso Promise Scholarship offers qualified full-time students the opportunity to receive $1,000 per semester for 2 years to help with tuition, books, and fees regardless of household income. “When a student attends community college only part time their chance of completing is 19%. If they attend full time their chances are 61%,” said President Jill Board. “This scholarship is intended to encourage full-time enrollment and to offset costs so students can graduate within the 2 years with little to no debt.”
The President’s Circle is the CCCC Foundation’s annual giving leadership society. With a gift of $1,000 or more, members make a powerful statement about the value of a community college education by directly supporting students in the Cerro Coso Promise Program. Membership in the President’s Circle sends a positive message to the community and inspires others to follow the lead of its members.
“Perhaps you recently hired one of our graduates to work in your business, taken a community education class, or you are one of our many alums and friends that have enjoyed attending CCCC performances or athletic events. Regardless of your affiliation with Cerro Coso, you are invited to become a member of the President’s Circle,” said Board. Donors to the President’s Circle share a deep appreciation for the role that the college and its graduates have played in shaping the community and the region. “These alumni, friends, business, and community leaders provide crucial support to the college and our students,” concluded Board.
President’s Circle members are given special recognition and sponsorship in various campus activities. Members are also invited to special college events that showcase the impact of their annual gift, like the President’s Circle brunch.
