Rancho Santa Fe residents’ $100K donation will enhance MiraCosta College student musical experiences

The MiraCosta College Music Program received a $100,000 donation from Rancho Santa Fe residents Sue Ellen and Pierre Leroy, which will provide further support for program excellence and student success.

The generous donation will be distributed over the next four years and will affect the music department in a number of ways.

A new “Guest Artist Series” will bring a variety of industry professionals and expert musicians to the college and to North San Diego County.

In addition, scholarships will be established for music students in need. The donation will also support student travel to conferences and festivals, and support other important music and industry experiences.

“The MiraCosta College Music Department is very grateful for the generous donation provided by the Leroys,” said Steve Torok, chairman of the music department. “They have demonstrated a genuine interest in the success of music students, and a clear willingness to support their educational goals. ”
