Moreno Valley College Promise Initiative/Hire MoVal
Wins Award of Excellence
On March 16, the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED) honored the City of Moreno Valley as the winner of the 2018 Programs Award of Excellence for the Moreno Valley College Promise Initiative/ Hire MoVal. Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez accepted the award.

The Moreno Valley College Promise Initiative was created to help fund the first year of community college for first time students. The program offers free tuition, fees and textbooks (not covered by financial aid) for the first year of college. The program also offers priority registration to ensure 12-15 units per semester and a Comprehensive Student Educational Plan (CSEP) that maps out classes from the first semester to the last, based on the student’s educational plan.

In an effort to strengthen and support the program, under the leadership of the Mayor and the City Council, the City approved an agreement to match the College’s efforts and pledged $50,000 to pay for the second year of the program for Moreno Valley residents attending Moreno Valley College.

In the first year of the program, the Moreno Valley College Promise Initiative funded more than 500 students and provided additional services strengthening that student’s chances for degree completion while simultaneously increasing educational attainment, a vital metric used by economic developers and expanding businesses.

“Partnering with Moreno Valley College on vital programs such as Hire MoVal and the College Promise Initiative is vital to the future economic vitality of our community,” said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez. “By helping to eliminate barriers to college attainment we invest in the most valuable asset in our community—our youth.”

Special Lighting for the "M"
Did you know that you can request the "M" on Box Springs Mountain to be lit up in specific colors to recognize a cause or enhance an event?

City Hall's LED lighting system on Box Springs Mountain for the 'M' is designed to enhance local events and provide a source of civic unity and pride. The default color will be white.

Lighting the ‘M’ promotes the City, its civic institutions, state and federal holidays, and other public events of community significance and times of celebration. The City may accept community requests for special lighting to recognize a specific cause or to commemorate or enhance a specific event. Non-profit and charitable organizations can request that the 'M' be illuminated in specific colors to elevate awareness of their cause. 

Priority in choosing colors for the lights will be given to promoting events that celebrate the City, its civic institutions, City‑recognized holidays, public events and festivals. Requests to change the color or pattern of the 'M’s' decorative lights will be accommodated as dates are available. The City reserves the right to deny or modify requests.

For more information, to see the lighting schedule or to submit a request please visit the City's website .
