Flagstaff, Ariz. - Antelope Point Marina has donated another $20,000 to the Coconino Community College Foundation to support scholarships for CCC students.


The funds will be split between two pots. About $10,000 of the donation will be applied to scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year. The remainder of the funds will be placed into an endowment, which will support scholarships at the College in perpetuity.


"These funds will help us provide educational opportunities to people in northern Coconino County," said Scott Talboom, executive director of the CCC Foundation. "Many of our students often travel long distances to seek education at CCC Page and in Flagstaff, which can be an additional hardship, adding to the cost of their education."


"We are proud to contribute to the assets of our regional communities - primarily the education and development of the diverse workforce in and around the Navajo Nation," said Michael Anderson, Antelope Point Marina general manager.


The Antelope Point Marina scholarship is awarded to students who are residents of northern Coconino County. Preference is given to current or past employees of Antelope Point Marina. Preference is also given to members of the Navajo Nation, and particularly, residents of the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation, which is near the city of Page.
