ENGLEWOOD — Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Electrical Trades junior Patrick Kauffman (National Trail) was awarded the ninth annual Jonathan Fultz Memorial Scholarship that included a $500 tool kit to be used his senior year in the program and while participating in the Pre-Apprenticeship Program at MVCTC.
This award honors the memory of Jonathan Fultz, a 1987 graduate from Preble Shawnee High School and Montgomery County Joint Vocational School (presently MVCTC) Electrical Trades program. Jonathan began his career as an apprentice electrician with the Wagner-Smith Company after high school and achieved the status of Project Manager before his death in July 2008. His mother, Helen Fultz, in order to honor Jonathan’s memory and to assist an MVCTC Electrical Trades student, established this award.
The goal is to make this a perpetuating award, to be given to a student in the MVCTC Electrical Trades program who has met the following criteria of having a 2.5 GPA or higher, 95 percent attendance rate, and on track for graduation with no credit deficiencies. Anyone wishing to contribute to this award may send a check to MVCTC, Attn: Debbie Gossett, Treasurer, 6800 Hoke Road, Englewood, OH 45315. Please make a note on the memo line indicating that the check is for the Jonathan Fultz Memorial Award.
