MTI and Mike Rowe Putting Faces to the mikeroweWORKS Scholarship Project
So I was in Springfield (Illinois) yesterday, and took a tour of a trade school called MTI. These guys have something like an 85% job placement rate for graduates, and I wanted to see what they were all about.
I’m glad I did.
Halfway through the tour, a group of guys approached me to say thanks. I didn’t know what they were talking about, but said “you’re welcome” anyway, because well … it’s polite.
As it turns out, these guys all received scholarship funds from mrW. I had no idea. I knew MTI was on the list of schools whose students are eligible to receive funds, but I had no idea that any recipients were actually there.
Very gratifying, and tied directly to the sale of my C.R.A.P. right here on these pages. I just thought it might be nice to put a few faces with the scholarship project. In all, 10 students at MTI are there on mrW scholarships. And I’d bet big that they will all have jobs upon graduation. I wish them all the very best.
