Registration & Sponsorships Now Open for Michelle & Malinda Kern Twilight 5k

EITC Foundation
Jul 30, 2015 03:34 PM

Eastern Idaho Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce the fifth annual Michelle & Malinda Kern Memorial Twilight 5K will take place on October 9, 2015 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 $30 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.

3rd Annual Idaho Gives is BACK

EITC Foundation
Apr 13, 2015 02:48 PM
Idaho Gives is a statewide effort to raise money for non-profit organizations around Idaho.
Why GIVE to the EITC Foundation?

EITC Foundation supports Eastern Idaho Technical College's efforts to develop our community through scholarships and campus support.

Somewhere along the way Chrystal lost her voice. She had it when she was born. She cried and laughed, and when she started talking, you could hardly get her to stop. She had a voice when she was jumping rope or playing games.

Then it was gone. Too much feeling like a “have not.” Too much time without guidance. Too much being told that “college wasn’t for her.”

Too often, people without money feel like they are nobodies, with nothing to say, and no one listening if they did.
Some people look for their voice with violence; some with drugs.

We help people rediscover their voice through education. Their career. And with their voice comes empowerment and a better life.

It’s your turn to help someone find their voice. It’s your turn to save a life.

The EITC Foundation is changing the lives of many in southeast Idaho through scholarships and educational equipment at Eastern Idaho Technical College.

And we don't just assist full-time students, we also help fund projects such as the Summer Science Camps for K-6 youth, workforce training scholarships for adults continuing their education and assist other non-profits in their community-minded missions.

Some of the projects that we are involved with include:

Summer Science Camps: based upon STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) principles, we make these challenging concepts fun, exciting and hands-on to Kindergarten through 6th graders at affordable half-day camps.

GED Scholarships: EITC's thriving Adult Learning Center provides educational support to those seeking their GEDs and EITCF fully supports their mission through scholarships and assistance for support services and COMPASS testing.

Annual Scholarship Program: although EITC is the most affordable college in the state of Idaho, many of our students struggle to provide for their families and attain an education. Scholarships help lighten the financial burden of our hard working and deserving students.

By supporting the EITC Foundation you can:

  • Do something truly remarkable - to make a quality, affordable college education accessible to all
  • Change a life for the better
  • Have an impact on the future that reaches from the classroom to the community

New Scholarship in Memory of Fernando Gonzalez

EITC Foundation
Nov 3, 2014 09:29 AM

 The Fernando Gonzalez Memorial Scholarship Fund


Supported by fellow EITC Automotive and Diesel Technology students, staff, faculty, friends and family

On July 18, 2014, Fernando Gonzalez of Roberts, Idaho, passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident. That day we lost a son, brother, uncle, and fellow tradesman. Fernando was a brilliant technician, loyal friend, and knew the value that hard work brings. His untimely death was a shock to all who knew him, and left many reeling with the loneliness of his absence.

To honor his memory, Eastern Idaho Technical College (EITC) is pleased to announce the Fernando Gonzalez Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund will be used to help students entering EITC, aspiring to join the field of work Fernando loved so much.

Members of the community who wish to make a donation to this fund will change the lives of students who may not be able to afford tuition, or cannot shoulder the cost of tools. Your contribution will make a fundamental difference in EITC students’ lives, and the workforce of Southeastern Idaho. No donation is too small, but its impact will be large. Anyone wishing to make a donation can contact Bailey Winn (208-524-3000 x 5407) or Natalie Hebard (208-524-3000 x 5398) at the EITC Foundation. All donations are tax deductible, and checks can be made payable to the EITC foundation. Thank you for your generosity.





The Fernando Gonzalez Memorial Scholarship Fund

El 18 de julio de 2014, Fernando González de Roberts, Idaho falleció tras un accidente de moto trágica. Ese día perdimos un hijo, hermano, tío, y un compañero comerciante. Fernando era un técnico brillante, fiel amigo, y sabía el valor que el trabajo duro trae. Su prematura muerte fue una conmoción para todos los que lo conocieron, y dejó a muchos tambaleándose con la soledad de su ausencia.

Para honrar su memoria, El Colegio Técnico del Este de Idaho (EITC) se complace en anunciar el Fondo de Becas Memorial Fernando González. Este fondo de becas será utilizado para ayudar a los estudiantes que ingresan EITC, que aspiran a unirse al campo de trabajo que Fernando amaba tanto.

Los miembros de la comunidad que deseen hacer una donación a este fondo van a cambiar la vida de los estudiantes los que no son capaces de pagar las tasas, o no pueden asumir el costo de las herramientas. Su contribución hará una diferencia fundamental en la vida de los estudiantes de EITC, y la mano de obra del sudeste de Idaho. Ninguna donación es demasiado pequeña, pero su impacto será grande. Cualquier persona que desee hacer una donación puede ponerse en contacto con Bailey Winn (208-524-3000 x 5407) o Natalie Hebard (208-524-3000 x 5398) en la Fundación de EITC.
