Enterprise Holdings Foundation presents $1,500 to the Mountwest Foundation for student scholarships

June 14, 2011

Huntington, W.Va. - Enterprise Holdings Foundation recently presented a $1,500 donation to the Mountwest Foundation for student scholarships.

The grant will provide much-needed financial support for current and former military service members enrolled in an associate degree program at Mountwest Community & Technical College. It will fund three student scholarships of $500 to be awarded this fall.

“Our veterans and current service members have sacrificed so much for our country. As many look to earn their degree from Mountwest, this corporate scholarship will make that journey possible, while honoring their sacrifice,” said Sheanna Spence, Mountwest director of development. “We are so grateful to have Enterprise Holdings Foundation as a community partner.”

Enterprise Holdings is the most comprehensive and largest car rental company in the world measured by revenue, employees and fleet. Enterprise Holdings operates the Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental brands.

The Mountwest Foundation was established in 2009 after the College became a stand-alone institution. The Foundation provides scholarships, academic support and capital project support to the College that will enhance the quality of education in order to further the careers of Mountwest Community & Technical College students.

To make a gift to the Mountwest Foundation or establish a new scholarship for Mountwest students, contact Spence at 304-696-3254 or spences@mctc.edu.
