College has an incredible impact on the life of young adults. This is the time they grow intellectually and begin to discover and engage in their profession. We are committed to bridging education and economics right here in our community.

Our scholarship fund encourages our brightest students to attend our local colleges and universities as they become future leaders of the West Valley. It is these key experiences that we are compelled to keep close to home.

Intellectual Retention

According to Forbes, only half of graduates return home post college: our talented minds are lost to other cities and states.

Academic Culture

Higher education culture continues to expand as new degree programs are introduced, meeting the needs of our future generations.

Local Impact

Students who attend college locally find great employment opportunities closer to home, boosting economic growth.

Support Industries

Career paths to specific industries become clear as students have insight and increased exposure to the local area and the people they serve.
