Owens Community College Foundation Recognizes Students For Academic Excellence

Owens Community College Foundation has awarded more than $48,000 in scholarships and program support to students for their outstanding achievements.

"The Owens Foundation is proud to recognize these students for displaying superior efforts and exemplary contributions while pursuing a college education," said Gary Dettling, Owens Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer. "Honoring the scholarship recipients and their accomplishments would not be possible without the generosity of Owens alumni and Northwest Ohio's business and industry. Their support through Foundation scholarships provide enhanced opportunities for students to achieve academic success."

The Owens Community College Foundation was incorporated in April 2002 and has over $1.3 million in assets. The Foundation Board of Directors currently is comprised of 19 community leaders from Lucas, Wood and Hancock counties.

The mission of the Owens Foundation and its Board of Directors is cultivating gift initiatives, targeting successful alumni, business and industry members who are committed to investing and supporting the educational needs of current and future Owens Community College students. The Foundation's focus allows Owens to continue offering affordable tuition, ensuring the College's academic position as the best investment in Northwest Ohio. The Owens Community College Foundation awarded over $427,000 in scholarships and program support this past year.
