David A Fitzwilliam – Reasesment of Scholarship Fundraising for Carla’s Year ‘17-’18
Three weeks ago Steve Boden – overseer of three non-profit foundations that support students in the automotive, construction, and IT programs – noted that most 4 year college students graduate with high debt and are under employed in their first job; while motivated H S automotive students (half time in their junior and senior years) that get certified and take 2 years of automotive classes at Montgomery College can be making more than $100k in a few years. There is a work/study programs where they work in an auto dealership 4 days a week attend M C on the fifth day. Steve’s challenge is that students must make a trade career decision in the 8th,9th, or 10th grade. Dave will explore encouraging high school students to evaluate these and additional careers with a Rotary/PTA partnership.
