    $500,000 raised to build a place for our students, the

    Christine Proudfoot Student Activity Center.


    With less than $20,000 to goal, Copper Mountain College Foundation held the dedication for the CPSAC on October 25, 2014. The place was packed, the Proudfoot Family was out in full and the half million dollar fundraising campaign was finished in style.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as students expressed their gratitude for the generosity of this community.

    The Request for Proposals (RFP) for the inside of the center will be going out to bid in January 2015 with construction starting soon thereafter. By May, we expect another celebration, a GRAND OPENING.

    A HUGE thank you to ALL of YOU!! Your payroll deductions, outright gifts, change and generosity has again made Copper Mountain College, OUR Community College.

    To quote Amanda Bauer,

    CMC Fiscal Services Accountant,

    “That is some major love for CMC from

    our small community!”

    THAT DEFINING MOMENT

    Have you ever had that instant in your life when your life changed? That defining moment? An experience, an event, an instant when your path in life took a turn? What precipitated that event or experience?

     As the Student Representative for the Copper Mountain College Foundation board, I am thankful to have met so many of you this past year. Last May I ran for the position of Student Trustee at CMC and lost to my colleague Randy Smith. How was I to know what I had actually won that day? Dr. Wagner invited me to be the Student Representative for the Foundation. I accepted and it has been a life changing experience. At 45 years old, I don’t say that lightly.

    I am constantly amazed by what our generous donors do at Copper Mountain College for our students. Your kindness allows them to get to school with reduced bus fare; provides textbooks, online access to homework, practice tests and so much more; your generosity supports their literary publication, the HOWL, sends them to conferences and competitions; your big heartedness has built them a place to hang out and be college students, the Christine Proudfoot Student Activity Center. I had no idea what the Foundation did for our students, now I can’t imagine CMC without the Foundation.

    My work with the Foundation is always fun. Our archeology dig to dedicate the Christine Proudfoot Student Activity Center, the Scholarship Tea, Young Frankenstein at Theatre 29 have been exciting and rewarding but it is always with serious goal of “maximizing the educational opportunities” for our students. You have been a tremendous support this past year; however I am asking for your continued commitment in 2015.

    I will graduate in May 2015 with an Administrative Justice Degree and will transfer to California State University, San Bernardino.I pledge to go out with a bang. This final semester at CMC, I will pour my heart into building our Foundation, supporting our students and giving back to the community that has given me the opportunity to go back to school and ultimately achieve my dream of becoming an attorney. I need your help! Please consider an end of the year gift as well as a pledge for the coming year. Together we are making a real difference in the lives of our students. Together we can do so much more. Thank you.
