  • Mentor Program

    Founded in 2006, The Foundation is committed to supporting the educational needs of area students and has awarded over $500,000 in scholarships the last 15 years. Students receive recognition at our Annual Education Symposium where we strive to bridge industry and education by building an effective workforce.

    After receiving their scholarships, students are placed in our Mentorship program where they are partnered with industry professionals from our community. The Mentor Program is designed to help our students succeed in school and in their careers.


  • Annual Education Symposium

    Building an Effective Workforce
    In 2013 the Chamber began dialogue to create a bridge between industry and education in order to create a workforce that meets the needs of businesses.

    The great work continues annually through this event! Attendees continue to discuss partnership models that are effective. Participants are also taking a look at the current changes in schools, discussing how industry can provide effective feedback, and calling for action.
