Education Committee

Connecting business and education

Our overreaching goal for the Education Committee is to connect businesses and education entities within the region, engage and obtain buy-in from the business community and increase student engagement. Four sub-committees will be formed to achieve the following:

  1. To grow the Chamber Foundation’s Scholarship Fund;
  2. Create partnerships among school principals and businesses;
  3. Obtain sponsorships and participants for hosting student tables at Chamber events;
  4. To host education supply drives.
