Funds Raised by the Concorde Foundation Help Students Achieve Their Dreams

“Without the support of certain instructors … I would not have pushed myself to grasp the concepts and pass my boards on the first attempt. Once I passed my boards, it was less than one month after that I landed my first Respiratory Therapist job where I am currently working with so much joy every day.”

“I decided to go to school because I was tired of working dead-end jobs. … When I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I needed a better life for me, for my child, for my husband, and just to better myself.”

WELCOME MESSAGE

Greetings to our Concorde Alumni!

In our last issue, Tawnya talked about the importance of community and giving time and energy to an organization that you love. It got me to thinking that this would be a great opportunity to talk to all of you about a nonprofit that is near and dear to everyone here at Concorde.

Concorde Career Colleges Scholarship Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3), is a charitable and educational organization that provides scholarships to help future students attending Concorde who have a passion for healthcare and who have demonstrated good academic achievements. The Foundation also provides financial assistance to other charitable programs in the communities it serves.

Kozet Patric Boyd was an accomplished Respiratory Therapist who spent 11 years teaching at our North Hollywood campus. Kozet truly epitomized Concorde, our Values and our Mission. To honor her selfless dedication to her students, the Concorde Scholarship Foundation has created The Kozet Boyd Memorial Scholarship.

Funds raised by the Concorde Foundation help qualifying students underwrite their dream of joining America's next generation of health care professionals and carrying on the spirit of Kozet by supporting other community outreach organizations across the country.

We'd love to have you, our Alumni, involved as well. Perhaps your employer is looking for an opportunity to partner with a nonprofit, maybe you have a great memory of Kozet you'd love to share or maybe you are looking for a worthy cause to donate to. If so - we'd love to hear from you. Give us a call at 913-831-9977.

Thank you for reading - and enjoy your spring issue!
Juli Fisher - Chief Financial Officer
