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.

Legacy Pathway & Donor Triangle - DEADLINE EXTENDED

EITC Foundation
May 6, 2014 09:49 AM


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. An artistic rendering of the area, which features not only hundreds of beautiful pavers but also landscape and seating, will be released in early Spring when the foundation will begin accepting sponsorships for the bricks.

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. Pre-order your brick(s) today by clicking on the PLEDGE NOW button below, downloading your form and returing it to the EITC Foundation. Questions? Call Natalie at 208-524-3000 ext. 3398.
