KCOCA Board of Directors

Our Story

Simply put, we are an organization of Kern County professionals dedicated to aiding the education of local students. The story behind our organization, KCOCA Founder and President Robin Brassfield-Cooper: "Many of you know that I have been involved in many organizations and charities, and for some time I have been wanting to start my own. I have spent many hours mentoring students and I have heard over and over again that they do not qualify for scholarships because they may not have a 4.0.  Over the years,  I have seen plenty of “B” average students become successful. The thought of a “B” average student giving up a dream due to the stress of financial hardship weighed heavy on my heart. In 2015, I formed my Committee Members who share my vision and we have been sharing our vision ever since!"
