Daniel-Mickel Foundation Gift of $100,000 to Help Quick Jobs Students Return to Work

The Daniel-Mickel Foundation of Greenville, SC, has pledged $100,000 over two years to be used to provide scholarship assistance to students of the Quick Jobs With a Future program at Greenville Technical College. Quick Jobs provides intense career focused training in more than eighty disciplines. Through up to 90 days of study, participants qualify for entry into career fields with current job openings.

At a luncheon on March 26th, Daniel-Mickel Foundation Board Chair, Minor Shaw, said, "Our foundation has been looking for ways to provide scholarship assistance to those who really need it to become able to support themselves and their families. This truly is it."

Ben Gantt, a participant who received the assistance said, "I was in a position of having to choose whether to feed our child or pay tuition until this assistance was made available. Because of this assistance I am now ready to enter a new career in the health care field."
