My parents established an endowed scholarship fund through the MiraCosta College Foundation because they believed in the college and the importance of supporting its students. Over the years, it has been my privilege and joy to add my financial support and to continue my parents’ legacy. My parents who lived in S. California enjoyed meeting the scholarship recipients so that they could see who their assistance was helping. My siblings and I who live far away have been fortunate to continue a tradition my parents established. The recipients are asked to share with us what the scholarship means to them. Almost without exception, they express heartfelt appreciation of the aid they received to complete their schooling, what they want to be, and even share their success in grades with us. Many times we continue to stay in touch well after they've completed their work at Mira Costa. As for the school, i've been extremely impressed at my parents choice of educational institutions. It's been our experience that the Scholarship and Foundation personnel are truly interested, concerned, and committed to helping the students make the most of their work and just getting through. I couldn't speak more highly of the administration and the job they do. I wish i was closer to visit and see it first hand but our experience from afar is the next best thing. Anyone wanting their contributions to make a difference, Mira Costa is a great bet.
