Events & Special Projects


The Foundation produces a number of special events each year. These events provide occasions for us to share our mission within the community and raise support for various programs that are outside the scope of regular state funding.

With the generous support of our donors, we have expanded our campus, added research facilities, offer innovative programs, and provide scholarships to deserving students.

I would be happy to assist you in finding the sponsorship opportunity that corresponds with
your interests. 

Warmest regards,

Nicole Russ
