July 23, 2014
The Foundry Educational Foundation (FEF), Schaumburg, Ill., announces a new scholarship program endowed by a $100,000 gift from Dr. Katherine E. Mortimer, an educator whose background in the industry includes previously working for Inductotherm Corp. The first annual scholarship from this endowment will be presented to a female student in November at the FEF College Industry Conference.
“I am very proud of this opportunity to help future generations of women through this partnership with FEF,” Mortimer said. “I am passionate about the equality of business opportunity for men and women. I support assisting young women in earning a solid education and achieving excellence in business practices. This will enable women to advance in the metalcasting industry, which will benefit our society.”
The Foundry Educational Foundation supports unique partnerships among students, educators and industry, helping today's students become tomorrow's leaders.
