MVCTC Education Foundation 5K continues helping students

CLAYTON – The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Education Foundation held the 6th Annual “Pi Miler” 5K run/walk on Sept. 28. Over 120 walkers/runners participated in the 3.14 mile course on the MVCTC campus. Thanks to the participants and many sponsors of the event, over $6,000 was raised for the Education Foundation.

The MVCTC Education Foundation was formed in 1991 by the MVCTC staff and various community leaders who wanted to provide targeted assistance to students needing financial help to complete their education. They believed that MVCTC would be the conduit that would connect skilled, well trained, entry-level workers with jobs. The Foundation provides assistance according to need. First, the Foundation provides financial support to both high school and adult students for career-specific materials and tools. Second, the Foundation dispenses “emergency needs” funds for situations that demand immediate attention and have exhausted all other resources. Third, the Foundation gives college scholarships annually to help students who want to go on to post-secondary education.

The Mission of the MVCTC Education Foundation “is to assist students whose financial or personal needs would prevent them from achieving an education and reaching their full potential. The belief of the Foundation is that as our students succeed, we all succeed as individuals and as a community.”

Sponsors of the 2013 MVCTC Education Foundation include the following: Gold Level – $500 donation: Dayton Cincinnati Technology, The Ohlmann Group, ServiceMaster, Woodyard Electric, Inc. Silver Level – $250 donation: App Architecture, Baird Public Investment Advisors, D& M Excavating, Eye Center of Richmond, Henny Penny, Hupman’s Lawn Care, Origami Owl, Kim Marburger, Independent Designer. Bronze Level – $100 donation: A to Z Asphalt Contractors, Boord-Henne Insurance, Drs Louis & Dominic Vitangeli, DDS, Kindred Funeral Home, New Creation Counseling Center, Northmont Area Chamber of Commerce, Sollmann Electric, Co. and Phelan Insurance Agency, Inc.
