To assist Buckeye Career Center students in their chosen career path, the Buckeye Career Center Foundation was established during the 1998-99 school year by a group of local business people from each school district sending students to Buckeye Career Center.
The Buckeye Foundation has three areas of interest:
- Provide scholarships for those secondary graduates that wish to advance their opportunities for employment by attending a trade, technical, or a four-year college.
- Provide grants to teachers at Buckeye Career Center for teaching aids and methods that will take students' learning to the highest level.
- Provide funds for recent needy graduates to purchase tools for a position of employment he/she has recently accepted.
Since 1999, the Buckeye Foundation has awarded a total of 233 scholarships worth $382,700 to Buckeye Career Center students. With 28% of Buckeye seniors pursuing post-secondary education, this assistance is a positive step. The trustees of the Buckeye Foundation hope the public will help us support these worthwhile needs.
