RSF Residents Provide Support to MiraCosta’s College Music Program

The MiraCosta College Music Program recently received a $100,000 donation from Rancho Santa Fe residents Pierre and Sue Ellen Leroy, which will provide further support for the program. The donation will be distributed over the next four years and will establish scholarships for music students in need, support students traveling to music conference and festivals, and bring a wide variety of industry professionals and expert musicians to the college and North County San Diego through a new “guest artist series.” The donation will also 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, Chair 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.” “We are so excited about making this gift to MiraCosta College’s Music Department,” shared Sue Ellen Leroy. “The program has assembled a world-class faculty who are delivering outstanding music education and opening doors of opportunity for students. Our gift is meant to augment their excellent work and help propel the program to new heights.” For more information regarding the donation contact Linda Fogerson at 760-795-6775 or visit the foundation website at
