EITC Foundation
Jul 30, 2014 02:15 PM

Eastern Idaho Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce the fourth annual Michelle & Malinda Kern Memorial Twilight 5K will take place on October 10, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. beginning and ending on the Eastern Idaho Technical College campus, Michelle Kern’s alma mater.  

Participants are welcome to walk or run the 5K route. Registration is $15 for any EITC or K-12 student, $25 before October 1 and $35 after October 1. Three or more family members may sign up for a discounted rate of $75 and three or more employees of the same company can each register for $20 each. All ages are encouraged to join in this event for a powerful cause.

Michelle Kern was a 2011 graduate from EITC’s Business Technologies Marketing & Management Associate of Applied Science degree program and an officer in Collegiate DECA. Three days after graduating, Michelle, her sister Malinda (who was enrolled at Eastern Idaho Technical College), and Michelle’s two young sons, Jack and Gage were murdered in Michelle’s parents’ home. This tragedy was a great loss to family and friends, Eastern Idaho Technical College, and the entire Idaho Falls community.

Proceeds from the Twilight 5K will be used to support the Michelle & Malinda Kern Memorial Scholarship for an Eastern Idaho Technical College student.  

Please join us in making sure that their memories will live on through the gift of scholarship. All support is greatly appreciated. Food and vendor booth space is available at this event.

After a year of careful planning, the Eastern Idaho Technical College Foundation is excited to begin building the Legacy Pathway, a stunning engraved brick pathway and outdoor seating area that will be built in the outdoor common area of the Eastern Idaho Technical College campus in Fall 2014.

The project will be managed by EITCF board director Cody Fresh, owner of Platinum Construction. Fresh, and Idaho Falls native and long-time supporter of local education and the college's mission, will also be the lead sponsor of the project.

The pathway of decorative engraved bricks may be sponsored by community members, businesses, students, alumni, staff, faculty and anyone who is willing to support Eastern Idaho Technical College. The cost of a 4" x 8" brick is just $50 and includes two lines of engraved characters. An 8" x 8" brick is only $100 and includes 5 lines of engraving.
