Three Morongo Basin residents are among 16 recipients of the prestigious Mary Stuart Rogers Scholarship from Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus for the 2013-14 academic year. They are Debra Freeland and Amanda Harrison both of Morongo Valley, and Jason Curodeau of Joshua Tree. The award is a merit-based scholarship and only awarded to the top students at the campus. Each student receives a $3900 scholarship for the entire academic year. Amanda Harrison will be a senior this fall studying biological psychology, a field that focuses on studying different aspects of the brain and how brain damage affects behavior. Jason Curodeau will be starting the multiple-subject teaching credential program in the fall. And Debra Freeland is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in English literature. The Rogers Scholarship has awarded more than $1 million since its inception in 1994.
