Gateway Foundation Scholarship Awards 2016

Gateway Foundation Scholarship Awards 2016


So we’re so excited about the Scholarship Awards
ceremony that happened on Saturday. We had over 400 people who came to
celebrate with our scholarship recipients. Their success and being
acknowledging their persistence and their commitment to their career in
technical education. Today we had 199 students
receive scholarships and those 199 students represent 205
scholarships. We are so grateful to our donors who make the scholarships possible.
And that represents over $127,000 to help
Gateway Students stay in school, persist in their studies and be
successful. It’s a phenomenal feeling. I have the Wisconsin State GI Bill
so that pays for my tuition, however it doesn’t pay for the books or the supplies,
so the scholarship comes in handy. It means that I will be able to continue
with the degree and I will graduate in May. It will cover my last four classes,
help to defray those costs and mean that I will accomplish my
goal of graduation. Not only do you have that feeling of success, but you also
have that feeling of support. I’m going to be very grateful for the family that has
made this possible to assist me this way and the graciousness that they have to
open up and be contributors to student educations. Also we are so grateful to our
Gateway Foundation donors and I know we have had just a great event today
celebrating our students and Gateway Technical College. If you’d like to learn
more about how you can make a difference in the life of a Gateway student you can
