Pueblo Community College Foundation

The Pueblo Community College Foundation is seeking financial support to fund scholarships for students attending college at one of PCC's four campuses (Pueblo, Canon City, Durango and Mancos/Cortez). Investment within the PCC Foundation's scholarship program insures that we are working together to educate the current and future work force for southern Colorado. In addition to scholarships, PCCF raises the funds to support current and new programs of academic excellence at Pueblo Community College.

Testimonials

My name is Juanita Munoz and I am a 26 year-old single parent of two beautiful girls. I would like to thank the Pueblo Community College Foundation for the opportunity to further my educational endeavors. Because of their support of Pueblo Community College and its student scholar program, my girls and I now have the opportunity for a bright future!

In 2011, I made the decision to go back to school and pursue a career. This was a tough decision for me and my family. Financially, we would have to tighten our belts. Emotionally, I would be missing out on time with my young daughters. My decision took much soul searching. I had to determine what would be best for me and my family and ultimately I felt that I needed to demonstrate the importance of higher education to my daughters and show them that working toward a goal would provide positive outcomes for our family.

Last year I was accepted into the Psychiatric Technician program at Pueblo Community College. At that time, I was also chosen as a recipient of a PCC Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship helped in defraying the costs of purchasing text books and classroom supplies.

I am pleased to announce that I am now a graduate of the Psych Tech program at Pueblo Community College and - thanks to the amazing support that I received from the PCC faculty and staff - I have recently been hired by the Colorado Mental Health Institute.

Pueblo Community College and the PCC Foundation have played a major role in my success and I thank them for their support of the PCC student scholar program.

I am hopeful that my story will prove to demonstrate the need for continued support of this amazing organization. Your financial investment truly does make a difference in the lives of so many within our Southern Colorado community.

With the Utmost of Gratitude,
Juanita Munoz, 2013/14 Pueblo Community College Foundation Scholar
