Berenice Rendon Talavera, consul general, and José Federico Bass Villarreal, deputy consul, from the Consulate General of Mexico in Denver met with Dwight Clasby, executive director for the Community College of Denver Foundation to sign an agreement outlining the details of a $15,000 grant from the Consulate. The grant provides scholarship support for Community College of Denver (CCD) students who are Mexican nationals or of Mexican descent.
The funds are provided through the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME)—an initiative of the Government of United Mexican States to support education for Mexicans living abroad. The CCD Foundation will match the grant funds dollar for dollar bringing the total amount of scholarship support for CCD students to $30,000.
Marsha Mattingly, grants director, and Andrea Kossik, assistant director of scholarships for CCD, participated in the meeting. After signing the agreements, the consul general presented a $15,000 check to the Foundation and Berenice and Federico were presented with a CCD mug and stuffed “Swoop” mascot.
The CCD Foundation extends enormous thanks to the Consulate General of Mexico for their continued support of CCD and our students!
