Heartland wins $10,000 grant from MTI Brownsburg

Midwest Technical Institute is pleased to announce the completion of the MTI High School Grant Program. Midwest Technical Institute set out to give away a $10,000 Grant at each of its seven campuses throughout the Midwest and Mississippi Delta region (where MTI does business as Delta Technical College). The final votes have been counted and a winner at each campus has been named. A check presentation ceremony is to follow at each campus by Chief Executive Officer Brian Huff.

Local area high schools were nominated by their community and a list of the top twenty five was chosen based on the top nomination recipients. The top twenty five schools were given an opportunity to make a video expressing how they would benefit from the $10,000 Grant and why they deserved it. The videos were posted on the Facebook page for the MTI Brownsburg, Indiana campus, and were then voted on by the public. The top school was then named as the winner and was awarded a check for $10,000.

Roann’s Community Heritage to meet May 12

For those who lack an accounting degree, filing taxes usually falls into the “burden” category, getting put off until the last moment and left with a small hope that some sort of credit or refund will come out of them. Luckily, Todd Zeiger, director of Indiana Landmarks, will be in Roann May 12 to explain how owners of historic properties willing to renovate can qualify for state and federal tax credits.

Zeiger will be speaking in the basement of the Roann Library at 7 p.m. Indiana Landmarks provides information about these tax benefits, which have been active since 1976.

“Tax credits work like this: 20 percent of what a property owner spends to rehabilitate a historic, income-producing property comes off the bottom line of the taxes paid to the state and federal government,” said Indiana Landmarks in an article on their website. “If an owner has spent $100,000 to restore an old hotel, for example, he pays $20,000 less in federal tax and $20,000 less in state tax.”

On April 24, Wabash County’s top students gathered at the Honeywell Center for a special luncheon with the county’s business leaders. The Wabash County Chamber of Commerce, the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce, and Manchester University sponsored the event. The purpose of the event was “to honor top graduating seniors from the county high schools, and to have an opportunity to encourage local talent to return to their home for employment opportunities during the summers or after graduation from their college experience,” according the a press release from the chamber. 

The large number of honors students was matched by a heavy community presence. Many students were able to sit with business professionals working in their areas of interest, as well as fellow students with similar college and career goals.

Serving as a sort of Master of Ceremonies for the luncheon, Manchester University Associate Vice President of Finance and Director of Operations Chris Garber welcomed those in attendance and introduced Wabash County Chamber of Commerce President Kim Pinkerton, who delivered the invocation.
