SOLA Giving Day Fundraiser

We are excited to participate in the SOLA Giving Day and hope to raise $10,000 to support, recruit, and recognize students and to demonstrate appreciation to our staff. Funds raised will be used to purchase honor cords for our students to wear at graduation in recognition of earning industry-based credentials that will allow them to obtain good first jobs, purchase materials and supplies to meet students' class needs and reward students for their contributions to our school, and support student recruitment efforts. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised will be dedicated to employee appreciation. To participate, go to:
