FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
The Lakeshore Technical College Foundation recently received a gift of $25,000 from Kaysun Corporation of Manitowoc to provide scholarship support for LTC students. Fifteen thousand dollars of the gift will be designated to support the LTC Promising Futures Scholarship Campaign. Launched last fall with a goal of one million dollars, the campaign aims at raising funds to help high school seniors and adult students access financial resources and enroll at LTC.
“We appreciate working with Lakeshore Technical College, and we’re excited to build on that partnership and grow it for the future,” said Ben Harrison, Kaysun Corporation President. “We’ve hired a number of well-prepared students from LTC, and we are very pleased with the quality of the programs, instructors, and facilities.”
With the remainder of the $25,000 gift, the Kaysun Corporation has established a company-named scholarship, the Kaysun Corporation Manufacturing Scholarship, to impact students residing in Manitowoc County and enrolled in one of the college’s advanced manufacturing programs. The scholarship will help cover the costs of tuition, books, fees, and supplies.
“Kaysun is an economic driver in Manitowoc and has continually provided employment opportunities for LTC graduates. Through this generous investment, Kaysun is helping LTC raise the overall educational attainment rate in Manitowoc and building a strong workforce,” said Dr. Paul Carlsen, LTC President.
