How We Have Helped

Since 2011, over $130,000 in scholarships have been awarded to Lucerne Valley Unified School District students. These scholarships have helped them in their pursuit of education and training in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and related fields.

Hollie received a scholarship for $2500 and is pursuing a degree in Business Administration. “My family and my goals have a big impact on my drive to succeed. My parents were unable to pursue a thorough education, but through their sacrifice, my siblings and I were able to have access to one.” said Lopez. Throughout high school, Hollie was surrounded by supportive teachers, friends, and staff who helped her work through her fear of attending college. She is starting her academic career at Victor Valley College and states, “I’m excited for the classes that I’ll be able to choose from and I’m ready to face the challenges in the coming year.”

MCCEF has been so generous in helping fund our sixth grade class trip to Disneyland for many years now! Without their help, we would not have been able to continue this field trip due to the rising costs.
