It was a difficult year when Cerro Coso lost employee, co-worker, friend, and Human Resource Assistant, Pam Coward. Family and coworkers have established a scholarship in her honor. Pam was a Human Resource Assistant at the college for 10 years and lost her courageous fight with brain cancer in October of 2010. Well known for her strong sense of integrity and selflessness, Pam was committed and passionate about her work. She will long be remembered most lovingly for her compassion, strength, and devotion to her husband (Bill), family, friends, animals, and coworkers.
"This scholarship will be awarded annually to an outgoing Cerro Coso student who exhibits the leadership, initiative, and passion for education for which Pam was known."
Cheryl Gates, CCCC Foundation President
The CCCC Foundation is committed to helping students succeed in college through its scholarship program.
