  1. Fantastic Mark!

  2. Wow, you don’t see this kind reaching out to from business to education much these days. It’s also a complete and creative package because it not only funds upcoming education, but provides the opportunity for practical, hands on application of new learning and pays back/recognizes those who have supported the student on her path so far. Very creative and forward thinking. I certainly hope other organizations in town are watching!
