APS awards CCC Foundation Basic Education grant

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- On October 20, 2011 Arizona Public Service (APS) presented a $10,000 check to Coconino Community College (CCC) Foundation to fund the College's Adult Basic Education Program. 

CCC assists between 400 to 450 Adult Education learners each year. Because approximately 75 percent or more of the Adult Basic Education learners are living below poverty level, they may not have the funds to pay for their adult education classes. This grant will enable them to have their fees paid through APS.

"I am pleased APS is providing funding to help support adult education programs.  The fees associated with these courses are not covered by student loans, Pell Grants, or traditional academic scholarships. We appreciate APS' generosity to help these adult learners," CCC Dean of Arts and Sciences, Ingrid Lee said.

Cindy Mays, APS Community Development Manager said, "We are proud to partner with CCC on this important workforce development initiative. Working collaboratively leads to a more economic vitality of the Flagstaff community."
