The LWTech Foundation supports student success and educational excellence by raising critical funds for student scholarships, program support and the student emergency fund.
This was an early morning but a fun and very rewarding project to work on. I was approached by a recent bride whose wedding I shot (the Bolen Wedding) about taking part in a fundraising event that her company was volunteering with. It was a breakfast over at the Lake Washington Technical College's Kirkland campus and was aimed at raising money for the LWTech Foundation. The LWTech Foundation offers a variety of merit and need-based scholarships for students enrolled or enrolling at Lake Washington Institute of Technology in the Fall and Spring of each academic year. The goal is to provide these students with the education and degrees necessary to successfully enter the workforce and be a productive employee.
Listening to the stories of the students who had been granted scholarships and the progress they had made was truly an emotional experience. The highlight for me was listening to Paige Houston one of the keynote speakers of the breakfast who spoke of being so proud of her scholarship and the degree she had earned that she was planning to frame them both and display them proudly. It brought the room to tears and really helped pack an emotional punch that I believe led to the strong number of donations that the foundation received at that breakfast. I hope my video continues to give the foundation the proper spotlight so they can help many more students find success in the years to come!
