Bishop Community Room Renamed to honor Dr. Terence K. McAteer

Dr. McAteer has been a loyal supporter of education in Inyo County. As president of the Eastern Sierra Foundation, he worked with the Inyo County Board of Education to contribute $1.2 million to the Eastern Sierra Foundation scholarship endowment. The endowment awards full scholarships to any Inyo County resident attending the Cerro Coso Bishop Campus full-time. It also ensures higher education is, and will continue to be, accessible and affordable to all Inyo County residents.
