The WTC Foundation has had a profound impact on the thousands of students who have passed through the doors of WTC.

Only recently has the WTC Foundation broadened its scope of activities to include more endeavors than just scholarships. The Foundation provides funding for projects that would otherwise not be possible. Recent examples include a new state-of-the-art Apple computer lab for the Graphic Design Program, connecting the new soccer complex to a water supply, and new livestock panels for the Coliseum, benefiting numerous community events from stock shows to concerts.

I am honored and deeply appreciative for the support I have been given. After graduation, I plan to transfer and earn my bachelor’s degree in radiology. The financial assistance you provided will be a great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to focus on the most important aspect of school, learning. Thanks to you I am one step closer to becoming the best radiologist I can be.
By awarding me a Foundation Scholarship, you have given me the option of a better education. I promise you I will work very hard in all my classes and prove what I am capable of. Thank you again for your generosity, it has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
