I am so grateful for the Mira Costa College Foundation they have allowed me the opportunity to pursue my dreams of becoming a Nurse. I would not have been able to do it without their financial assistance. Thank You Mira Costa!

The MiraCosta College Foundation has made a life changing impact upon me. I was asked to share my student testimonial at the MCC Foundation's Silver & Gold Holiday Celebration in 2013; as a result, I have begun motivational speaking through-out North County San Diego. Also, I am a recipient of the Mort and Agatha Winski scholarship which has helped me tremendously! After receiving the scholarship I have been able to excel in the classroom and work less hours during finals. I am very proud of Linda Fogerson, Cynthia Rice, and Board of Trustees President David Broad for their dedication to raising funds for students in need like myself. Thank again.

I volunteered after being introduced to MiraCosta adminstration in 1998. I benefited from 2 1/2 years at a community college so I know how valuable a role the community college system plays. This is true for those going on to a 4 year college, as well as those re-training for a new career. I have seen the foundation play a role in developing relationships with various local employers to create training programs such as the partnership with Genentech. This provides outstanding value to the students and the community.

I am forever indebted by the foundation and the amazing leader who encourages us to reach for more. I did not expect a Scholarship;although, I meet all the requirments because of how unfortunate I have been. I have applied for workstudy to be refused because of financial cut backs, so when I won my first scholarship of $500 dollars a semster, it let me know that my efforts were not in vain and that I was being recognized. Thank you very much and people like me are able to continue with our Education no matter the financial burden thanks to this crucial foundation. Thank you to all the Donors and know that you are making a huge difference!
