 Grainger Foundation Supports Jefferson College Foundation

The Grainger Foundation has donated $5,000 to the Jefferson College Foundation in support Jefferson College’s mission to provide quality education that fosters a supportive learning environment and promote intellectual, social, and personal growth. Pictured, from left, is Jefferson College President Dr. Raymond Cummiskey, Grainger Branch Manager Daniel Onder, Jefferson College Foundation Consultant Tom Burke, Jefferson College Dean of Career and Technical Education Elizabeth Check, and Jefferson College Automotive Technology Professor Gerard Uhls.

“The donation will be used to purchase a set of hybrid car technologies that will allow the college to teach students about alternative hybrid technology. This technology is used to increase automobile efficiency and is considered environmentally responsible,” said Elizabeth Check. “The Automotive faculty are happy to have the latest technology for use in the classroom. We are grateful to The Grainger Foundation for its support.”

The donation was recommended by Dan Onder of W.W. Grainger, Inc.’s, Fenton, Missouri, location. Grainger has been a part of the Fenton business community for more than 20 years as the leading broad line supplier of facilities maintenance, repair, and operating products.

“We are proud to recommend the programs offered by Jefferson College,” said Onder. “We understand the need to educate students on new technologies that will help reduce gas emissions and improve the environment.”

The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation based in Lake Forest, Illinois, was established in 1949 by William W. Grainger, founder of W.W. Grainger, Inc.
