I■ Mt. San Jacinto / College
n response to the news of allegations of abuse endured by the Turpin siblings in Perris, the city of Perris and Mt. San Jacinto College partnered to create two separate scholarship funds.
The first, called the Perris Inspires Fund, was announced on Feb. 8, 2018 and raises funds for the 13 Turpin children so they may attend a college to earn a degree, a career certificate or transfer to a university. The funds will allow the Turpin children to attend MSJC or any educational institution of their choice.
The second scholarship is designed to aid students majoring in child care, social work and health care. Donors interested in supporting these students can contribute to the Perris Live Well Education Fund for social services.
Eligible students must be residents of Perris and must attend Mt. San Jacinto College to earn an associate’s degree, career certificate or the credits required to transfer to a four-year institution.
