The Murray Family Foundation recently awarded the Bates Technical College Foundation a $10,000 grant in support of the Henry T. Schatz Endowed Scholarship for Manufacturing Technologies.

 Schatz has pledged to match 50 percent of every donation to the scholarship, making the gift worth $15,000 to the Bates Foundation.

 “We are so grateful to the Murray Family Foundation for this generous gift,” said Linda Jadwin, chair of the Bates Foundation. “The Henry T. Schatz Scholarship supports students in some of the college’s highest enrolled and highest demand STEM programs.”

 The average Henry T. Schatz Endowed Scholarship award is $1,500. The scholarship goes toward a student’s tuition, books, tools and supplies.

 “Our community needs well-trained, skilled manufacturing technology workers in order to attract new businesses to the community and keep our existing local industries competitive,” said Schatz. “This scholarship allows aspiring, capable and financially needy students to concentrate more of their time on the training they need to be successful.”
