Copper Mountain College Foundation Accepting Applications for the Roy Greenleaf Scholarship

    February 16, 2009

    JOSHUA TREE, Ca– The Copper Mountain College Foundation is now accepting applications for the Roy Greenleaf, Jr. Scholarship for the 2009-2010 school year.

    The Greenleaf Scholarship will be awarded to a local high school senior that demonstrates a strong determination to succeed, an abiding desire to help others in their school, family and community, financial need, and an interest in serving the Morongo Basin upon completion of their education.

    The scholarship was set up by the trust of the late Roy Greenleaf, Jr., a local banker and benefactor whose desire was to help deserving students achieve their educational dreams. The Greenleaf Scholarship pays for tuition, books, fees and standard living expenses for a graduating senior from one of the five Morongo Basin high schools including Joshua Springs Christian, Monument, Sky, Twentynine Palms and Yucca Valley. The selected senior is expected to enter Copper Mountain College in the fall of 2009 and earn a degree within two years. The scholar can then transfer to complete their education at a 4-year UC or CSU institution within California. Application forms and additional information is available in the Counseling Office at each of the five eligible high schools, and at the Copper Mountain College Foundation office on the CMC campus next to the General Ernie Reid Bookstore. The due date for the return of the application to the applicable high school Counseling Office is Tuesday, March 31, 2009. Finalists will be interviewed and the winner announced in late April, with remaining finalists receiving a cash award.

    For additional information about this unique scholarship opportunity, please call the Copper Mountain College Foundation office at 760-366-3791 ext. 4200, or visit the Foundation online at
