Ivory Foundation Helps Aid Veterans Entering Trade School
A component of the Ivory Homes mission statement is "to contribute to and uplift the broader community." Through the Clark and Christine Ivory Foundation we give back to our community in a number of ways, including partnering with colleges and schools to provide scholarships, mentoring and internships for first-generation students, single parents, veterans, and students close to graduation.
On this special occasion, and in honor of Veteran's Day and our commitment to "Lift and Educate," we would like to share how the Ivory Foundation worked with Utah Veterans Alliance, and their partnership with Utah Electrical Training Alliance, to provide 35 veterans with financial support to go towards their quest to become electricians.
Skyler Edwards, one of the recipients of the Honoring Heroes Scholarship fund said, "This scholarship meant the world to my growing family. The biggest thing it did was give us peace of mind, with 2 kids and one on the way, knowing that we didn't have to come up with the full amount of tuition for the semester."
Edwards continued, "When you join, you never expect to be recognized because you are doing it to protect the ones you love and care about... Gestures like this make all the sacrifices worth it and makes you appreciate your fellow civilian brethren and fellow service members. Thank you so much for taking the time to recognize all of the Utah Electrical Training Alliance Veterans. Your generosity does make a difference!!"
The Clark and Christine Ivory said, "We care about the larger world we live in and our very own community. We conserve, we invest, and we remember that it is our responsibility to make Utah a better place."
