The Jim Bohnsack Education Fund

The Jim Bohnsack Education Fund

The Jim Bohnsack Fund for the Tri County Tech FIRST Robotics Team was established to honor the late Jim Bohnsack. Jim felt education was the key to success available to anyone who so desired it and so he made his lifelong mission to support students, teachers, and educational institutions. Early in his career, he taught evenings at Tri County Tech, Rogers State University, and Wesleyan College. Some were computer classes when few knew how to use the computer, and some of his earliest colleagues deemed the contraption a fad. Jim led bond issues to improve and enhance the local school system. He encouraged and promoted local college students whenever possible to help them get started in their careers. He helped establish the Tri County Tech FIRST Robotics Team, knowing this would open the door for local students wanting to pursue a career in engineering or the space industry.
