Klamath Falls Bank of the Cascades branch Manager, Dan Hernandez, received notification of the grant outcome June 9 from the bank's Bend branch.
KCC Foundation Executive Director Dr. Steven Meneses was pleased with the award and noted, “The Foundation applied for the grant back in April, so we were pleased to receive the phone call. This amount will be put toward the continued efforts the college and the foundation are making toward student success.
Mr. Hernandez stated that “the Bank of the Cascades is an organization that values partnerships both business and education, and when we can make a contribution to the needs of education in Klamath Falls, our bank is delighted.”
In turn, the Foundation turned around and awarded student, Tanya Hanover, the KCC Student Leadership Institute scholarship for her essay on Leadership and Critical Thinking.
The Foundation saw 18 students complete the Student Leadership Institute this Spring Term. As a popular noncredit class, the Foundation is looking to offer the Leadership/Critical Thinking curriculum for two terms during the 2015/16 academic year.
In other news, Dr. Meneses orchestrated a June 26 visit from Kruise of Klamath. Over 100 antique cars will be on the KCC campus from Noon-2 pm as well as a Food Cart, Disc Jockey and KCC Automotive students giving tours of the Automotive and Diesel facilities. The Foundation will also host a 50/50 raffle for student scholarships at this event.
The KCC Foundation is the non-profit entity of the college and supports student success through both financial and asset contributions. Additionally, the Foundation supports student scholarship with an annual spring scholarship Gala.
