The 3rd Annual Dr. Dennis L. Portis III Memorial Golf Tournament

September 15 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

CAN YOU IMAGINE NOT HAVING GAS IN YOUR CAR TO GET TO WORK OR SCHOOL? WHAT IF YOU ARRIVED HOME TO NO ELECTRICITY WITH CHILDREN DEPENDING UPON YOU? HOW ABOUT IF YOU NEEDED EYE GLASSES SO YOU COULD TAKE A TEST? OR IF YOU WERE JUST A CERTIFICATION AWAY FROM GETTING THAT GREAT JOB, BUT JUST COULDN’T STRETCH YOUR BUDGET TO PAY FOR IT. THESE ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES FACED BY MANY OF THE STUDENTS WHO ATTEND METRO TECHNOLOGY CENTERS. FOR MOST STUDENTS, SUCCESS COMES FROM COMPLETING THEIR CAREER TRAINING AND ENTERING THE WORKFORCE FOR A BETTER LIFE OR FURTHERING THEIR EDUCATION. BUT, WHEN THEY ARE FACED WITH FINANCIAL OBSTACLES, OFTEN TIMES A STUDENT MAY HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION TO DROP OUT. THIS IS WHERE THE FOUNDATION CAN HELP!

THE FOUNDATION HELPS HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS WITH CERTIFICATION FEES, UTILITIES, GASOLINE, EYES GLASSES, UNIFORMS, SUPPLIES, TOOLS AND EMERGENCY TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE, THESE ARE THE VERY THINGS THAT CAN BE OBSTACLES TO STUDENT SUCCESS. IT IS THROUGH GIFTS, DONATIONS AND VOLUNTEER WORK THAT THE METRO TECH FOUNDATION WAS ABLE TO HELP OVER 380 STUDENTS LAST YEAR. *PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO VIEW A METRO TECH STUDENT SUCCESS STORY THAT I FEEL YOU DEFINITELY WILL ENJOY AND BE
INSPIRED BY.
