Elisabeth Sorensen, LWTech Foundation Executive Director
Dear Friends,
What an inspirational year!
As Executive Director of
the Foundation, I have the honor to witness the impact of your generosity on a daily basis. Your gifts of time, talent, and treasure are truly transforming the lives of
our students. I’d like to share just a few examples with you.
• Scholarship recipient and Computer Security Network Technician student Paige Houston framed her scholarship award letter. According to Houston, the scholarship provided her with critical funds to complete her academic program as well as increased confidence and new hope for the future.
• A scholarship recipient and recent graduate of the Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technician program made an anonymous donation to the Foundation simply stating his sincere gratitude for the scholarship and a strong desire to “pay it forward.”
Thank you for your incredible generosity to the Foundation! YOU are making a difference in the lives of our students.
• The Foundation received a moving note from scholarship recipient Manisha Walia. Walia graduated with her two-year transfer degree in Dental Hygiene in 2015. She is happily and successfully working full-time in her chosen field. Further, she’s chosen to continue her education with plans to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene in fall 2016.
• The Foundation’s student emergency fund was able to assist a full-time student with a small, one-time grant for essential living expenses when she was unable to work while undergoing cancer treatments. She is still in school today and on track to graduate in winter 2017.
