The $2600 Donation Will Support the Organization’s Programs for Injured Veterans and Their Families
HOUSTON, Texas and CANTON, MICH. (Sep. 8, 2021) – MIAT College of Technology recently donated $2600 to the Wounded Warrior Project™ to support the organization’s work for the veterans and service members who incurred an injury, illness, or wound during military service. The College created a T-shirt and then hosted a fundraiser at both campus locations raising $2620 to help veterans transition to their next mission. Faculty and students were encouraged to wear their purchased t-shirts on campus as part of their normal uniform.
MIAT operates campuses in Houston and in Canton, Mich. near Detroit. The school offers college credit for relevant skills veterans have demonstrated during their service as verified on Joint Service Transcripts (JST) that can be applied to the credits needed for a chosen MIAT program. MIAT College of Technology was recently named a Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency (MVAA) certified Gold Level Veteran-Friendly School. MIAT offers certificate and associate degree programs in wind technology as well as aviation maintenance, energy technology, HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration), robotics and automation, welding, and non-destructive testing.
“Veterans are an important part of our campus community. This year’s t-shirt fundraiser that raised funds for the Wounded Warrior Project is just one example of how MIAT honors our nation’s military and their service to our country. We respect the time and energy our veterans put into protecting our country, and we are honored to help be a part of their transition to a promising civilian career as quickly and easily as possible,” commented Houston campus president John Willis.
