A Christmas Gift to UBTech From The You Got This Foundation
Just in time for Christmas, You Got This (YGT) Foundation President, Chris Anderton, came to UBTech on a surprise visit and signed a contract, doubling their scholarship contribution to the college.
Just over a year ago, YGT committed $20,000 over a 10 year period of time, to UBTech, providing scholarships in support of basic skills training for students attending the college.
The new contract guarantees a minimum contribution of $40,000 over the next 10 years.
Basic skills help students pass the requirements to enroll in UBTech certificate programs.
“It gives students the assistance and confidence they need in order to be successful in our programs,” said Student Success Officer, Jim LaMuth. “It’s giving them the first step towards changing their lives.”
Since 2018, the YGT scholarship has benefited 50 students.
“The results are amazing, we are pleased with the number of students we have helped. We believe by doubling our contribution, we’ll be able to help even more students benefit from the gift of an education,” said Anderton.
“UBTech has shown a tremendous return on our investment. Why wouldn’t we want to continue to support an organization that is doing such a good job with those dollars?” he said.
“Since the partnership started in 2018, every student desiring to take our basic skills courses has had the opportunity to be successful,” added UBTech President Aaron Weight.
“We are delighted with how far contributions can go in technical education,” said Anderton.
“We are thankful for the support we received from Charity of Trees and Festival of Trees,” said Anderton. “This is our gift back to the community.”
