EHOVE student presented with local scholarship
Norwalk Lions Club members and the Bader Family, owners of Summit Motorsports, presented a $2,000 scholarship to Matthew Griggs of Norwalk, a student in EHOVE’s Adult Education Firefighter program.
“Matthew worked very hard to get into the Firefighter program. He developed a health and exercise program that has helped him to become physically fit. He realized that he needed to increase his strength, fitness and endurance to do the job of a Firefighter/EMT,” said EHOVE Student Services Coordinator Deb Presser.
The Bader Family scholarship is funded entirely by The Norwalk Lions Club, through monies earned staffing the Beer Booth at Summit Motorsports. The Lions Club has been very generous with EHOVE sponsoring scholarships since 2007. The recipients are selected by the Lions Club. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide educational assistance to deserving EHOVE Adult Career Center students.
“My career goals are to become a Firefighter/EMT and continue my education to be qualified for additional areas in that field,” said Griggs.
