F. Roy Greenleaf, Jr. built his legacy at our community college by leaving his entire estate to Copper Mountain College Foundation. Each spring since 2002, the CMC Foundation chooses a student to receive a scholarship that pays all tuition fees, books, and living expenses for an associate degree at Copper Mountain College and then a bachelor’s degree at a California state university. The intent of the scholarship is for the recipient to return to the Morongo Basin to live and work after completing their education. Additional criteria includes a solid academic background, involvement in extra-curricular school and community activities and a strong determination to succeed.
