Flagstaff, Ariz. (Aug. 9, 2017) - The Coconino Community College Foundation Annual Meeting, Alumni & Awards Breakfast will be Friday, Sept. 8, from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

 

Immediately following the breakfast, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly remodeled Veteran Center at the Lone Tree Campus.

 

"The Annual Meeting is a time for us to report to the community, but it's also a time to honor our outstanding students who have received scholarships," said Scott Talboom, Executive Director of CCC Office of Institutional Advancement. "We also honor our alumni who are giving back to our community."

 

The fundraising breakfast features stories of student success made possible through scholarships from the CCC Foundation and gives supporters an update on the Foundation's performance during the previous year.

With the help of a grant from Support Education and Employment for Vets (SEE4Vets), CCC staff members were able to make a safe, comfortable and inviting place for veterans to congregate while on campus. Thanks also go to the Home Depot Foundation, SounDecision, Herron Interior Design, Inc., Classic Leather, Inc., and the CCC Facilities Staff for making the remodel of the Veteran Center possible.
