Copper Mountain College Foundation Announces the 2016 Greenleaf Scholar

Copper Mountain College Foundation is proud to announce Beayahn Carrllo of Twentynine Palms as the 2016 Greenleaf Scholarship winner.

Carrllo is a senior at Twentynine Palms High School and has proven in his academics, high school sports and work for the City of Twentynine Palms that giving up is never an option. This young man is paving the way for his future in law enforcement by being active in the San Bernardino County Sherriff Explorer Program.

Beayahn Carrllo was chosen out of a very competitive field to receive this year’s Greenleaf Scholarship. The scholarship will pay tuition, books and fees plus, living expenses while Carrllo is a student at Copper Mountain College. In addition, the scholarship will pay those same expenses while he completes a baccalaureate degree at a four year institution.

The Foundation will honor Beayahn Carrllo and recognize the five other finalists for the Greenleaf Scholarship; Rebecca Arellano, Katherine Colby, Thomas Geiger, Adriann Miller and Courtney Stanford during an Award Ceremony on April 14, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. in the Front Foyer of the Bell Center.

Endowed by local banker F. Roy Greenleaf Jr., the scholarship is awarded each year to a promising student that is interested in learning, success oriented, has performed successfully in school and shows a desire to return to the Morongo Basin upon completion of his or her education. Carrllo plans on attaining a degree in Criminal Justice and becoming a police officer. He states, “All I need is one chance to make my dreams come true” and he is getting it with the Greenleaf Scholarship.

The ceremony is open to the public. For more information on the Greenleaf Scholarship, visit
