Clatsop Community College received word last month that the Meyer Memorial Trust awarded the college a $500,000 grant for the Jerome Campus Renovation Project.


The Meyer Memorial Trust distributed $400,000 as an outright grant and will distribute the remaining $100,000 when matching support is secured.


"Receiving this grant is truly exciting," says Greg Hamann, CCC President. "We are deeply honored and grateful that the Meyer Memorial Trust sees the importance of the Jerome Campus Renovation Project to the College and our community. Not only will this funding make a difference for the renovation of the campus, we believe it represents an investment in the future of Clatsop County. We also believe that the challenge of matching the $100,000 portion of this grant will give Clatsop County supporters the opportunity to become part of this important project."
