Tri County Tech Foundation Receives Arvest Foundation Donation

Donation Will Support Emergency Assistance Program

The Arvest Foundation recently announced a $10,000 contribution to Tri County Tech Foundation, whose purpose is to ensure no student is denied an education due to the lack of funds.

The donation from the Arvest Foundation will be used to support an emergency assistance program to provide aid to students when unforeseen financial emergencies could compromise attendance and program completion.

Arvest local bank president Kim Moyer and Arvest Wealth Management regional manager Josh Randolph presented the check to Dr. Tammie Strobel Tri County Tech Superintendent & CEO, Kim Smith Tri County Tech Chief Administrative Officer, and Champagne Kane Business Development Specialist.

“We are happy to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support students pursuing a technical degree by helping to remove any barriers to education,” said Moyer.
“The Foundation has assisted students with food, transportation, eyeglasses, and testing fees through our emergency assistance program,” says Champagne Kane. “This gift will provide critical support services for our students, and the Arvest Foundation’s commitment to help them achieve their full potential is an invaluable contribution.”

Investing in the Tri County Tech Foundation yields tremendous economic benefits and life-changing career opportunities. For every dollar contributed, the return on investment amounts to $100 over five years. No other investment provides such remarkable dividends.
