FLAGSTAFF — Coconino Community College has received the largest donation in the college’s history to attract male high school students to higher education.

A private donor has offered the college $1 million per year for four years to achieve the goal.

“This transformational gift will allow us to blaze a new path forward and open the doors of higher education for students who may not have been considering going to college,” said Dr. Eric Heiser, President of CCC. “With the resources that this gift will provide, we will be able to focus specifically on those male students who have not re-engaged with community college since the onset of the pandemic.”

Dianna Sanchez, Chief Development Officer for the CCC Foundation, said, “The magnitude of this gift is truly unprecedented for CCC. As the largest gift in the Foundation’s history, it will provide the necessary resources to vastly increase our male students’ chances for success in higher education, degree attainment and employment.”
