Before the Battle of the Bell football game, the stands swelled with excitement as several local Bosses including Morongo Unified Superintendent, Tom Baumgarten; Twentynine Palms High School Principal Justin Monical; Yucca Valley High School Vice-Principal, Mike Ruggerio; Yucca Valley Town Manager, Curtis Yakimow; Twentynine Palms City Manager, Frank Luckino; and Joshua Tree National Park Superintendent, David Smith showed their athletic abilities on a timed obstacle course. Many fouls were called by referee Jeff Cummings, Superintendent/President of Copper Mountain College; and there was a fierce battle for first place but Frank Luckino, Twentynine Palms City Manager exhibited a superior throwing arm to take the win.
Sponsors cheered for their favorite bosses by donating $6,200 for student athletic scholarships at Copper Mountain College. Top donor, NextEra Energy Resources was awarded a Charter Membership in the CMC Athletic Booster Club for their $2,500 donation. Copper Mountain College Foundation would like to thank Tom Baumgarten, MUSD Superintendent, the Donors and all of the Bosses who helped raise funds for new student athlete scholarships.
