Mountwest partners with Enterprise to support veterans

July 02, 2013

Huntington, W.Va. - The Mountwest Foundation is continuing its partnership with the Enterprise Holdings Foundation to create educational opportunities for the community’s service men and women.

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation Scholarship for Veterans was recently awarded to six Mountwest students for the summer 2013 term:  Bryan J. Korec – a Sergeant in the US Army; Michael A. James – a Staff Sergeant in the US Army; Samuel Middleton – Sergeant First Class in the US Army; Eric Spurlock is disabled and served as a Petty Officer in the US Coast Guard; Vonley Stanley – Sergeant First Class in the US Army; and Nicholas Stuebben – Staff Sergeant in the US Army.

Additionally, Mountwest received $2,000 in grant funds from Enterprise last month to provide more assistance to active-duty military and veteran students in identifying and applying for jobs in their career field. Mountwest’s Office of Military and Veterans Programs will work hand-in-hand with the College’s Office of Career Services to help more of these students transition into the workforce following graduation. Mountwest continues to work to improve this program in an effort to help deserving men and women train for and enter high-demand career fields.

This is the third consecutive year that Enterprise Holdings Foundation has supported the Mountwest Foundation. Enterprise Holdings is the corporate parent of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car, National Car Rental and Enterprise CarShare.  

“The generosity of Enterprise has and continues to provide so many opportunities for our veterans,” said Dr. Keith Cotroneo, President of Mountwest. “Our ultimate goal at Mountwest is to establish a proven national model for providing post-secondary support services to military service members and veterans, and partnering with organizations like Enterprise helps us do just that.”
