Copper Mountain College Foundation announced Yvonna Mullen of Twentynine Palms High School the 2017 Greenleaf Scholarship winner. The scholarship will pay tuition, books and fees, plus living expenses while Mullen is a student at Copper Mountain College and while she completes a degree at a four-year institute. Mullen’s mother Sumiko Manigan said, “I am so grateful for the Roy Greenleaf Scholarship which will allow my daughter to have a very bright future. I graduated from CMC in 2005 with a degree in vocational nursing. CMC helped me achieve my dreams as a single, low-income parent. Now CMC has awarded my daughter the ability to pursue her dreams, and we are eternally grateful.” The Foundation will host a Greenleaf Award Ceremony on April 13 at 5:30 p.m. in the front foyer of the Bell Center to honor Yvonna Mullen and recognize the six other finalists for the Greenleaf Scholarship: Kayleigh Coughlin, Joshua Elmer, Gauge Hill, Carly Jacobs, Kyla Limon and Kyra Minatrea. Mullen plans on attaining a degree in herpetology and bringing her knowledge back to the Hi-Desert.
