Fabian Huizar Receives Tools for Tomorrow ScholarshipFebruary 15 | Posted by editor | News, Union Tags: North GA Technical College
Blairsville, GA - Fabian Huizar, a student in the Air Conditioning Technology Diploma Program at North Georgia Technical College, received the Grainger $2500 Tools for Tomorrow Scholarship.
W.W. Grainger, Inc., a world-wide distributor of industrial and commercial equipment and supplies, recognizes outstanding students with a $2,000 scholarship and a customized Westward® toolkit upon successful completion of the student’s technical education program. Mr. Huizar will graduate in December, 2012.
“We hope that this award will encourage both Fabian and his classmates to push farther,” said NGTC Director of Institutional Advancement Cynthia Brown. “These are role models for the students who will come behind them. They are the future of our workforce.”
Through a competitive selection process, students studying electronic systems, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, pneumatics, welding, automotive, construction, facilities maintenance or other industrial trade may apply for the scholarship. Beginning in Fall 2010, a limited number of scholarships were set aside by the Grainger Corporation in support of industrial trades professions.
As fees increase and HOPE Grants and Scholarships cover fewer costs, donors like Grainger are making it possible for many students to complete their education and go to work. “We look forward to a long relationship with Grainger in assisting other students in meeting their educational needs,” said Brown.
