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.

Heartland Career Center was presented with the check for $10,000 on Wednesday, April 30.

Heartland Career Center’s School Improvement committee met recently and they are gathering ideas from staff and students on how to use the money at Heartland. Ideas are due to the committee by May 16. Check back with The Paper for updates on Heartland’s decision and coverage on their future improvements.
