Tilbury Family Fund Established

Randy and Phyllis Tilbury recently established the Tilbury Family Fund at the Steuben County Community Foundation. The Tilburys are life-long residents and raised their two children in Steuben County. They have made a commitment to giving back through an endowed scholarship fund. The Tilbury Family Fund will provide annual scholarships to Steuben County students choosing to attend Bethel College or Butler University. Their son, Chris Tilbury, graduated from Bethel College in 2007 with a business degree. Today he is the golf professional at Pretty Lake Golf Club in Plymouth, IN where he also manages the golf course restaurant and facility. Their daughter, Sarah Mills, graduated from Butler University in 2010 with a pharmacy degree. Today she is the head pharmacist at Meijer's northeast store in Fort Wayne, IN. “We were very pleased with the education and the guidance that these universities provided for our children as they grew into adulthood,” said the Tilburys. 
SCCF Commits to Quality Child Care

SCCF has awarded a one-year grant of $36,080 to the Early Childhood Alliance (ECA), the Child Care Resource & Referral agency serving Steuben County. The grant was awarded to ECA in response to a need for more quality child care options across the county. Building capacity and increasing quality of programs are critical in meeting the needs of Steuben county families, based on a survey of county child care providers, combined with county report data.
Shannon Gage, Program Director of Early Childhood Alliance, addresses Steuben County childcare providers at a recent provider event held at SCCF.
 
Fremont Fund Provides 3D Printer to Middle School

Last Fall, the Fremont Middle School Project Based Learning (PBL) class received a grant from the Fremont Fund at SCCF and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce to purchase a Dremel 3D40 3D printer. The printer has been in the Middle School PBL classroom since January and has had an impact on many Fremont students. Fremont has been able to share the printer between schools. The elementary school is creating reusable airplane glider parts for use in a STEM project and a high school business class has explored the possibilities of the printer and the design software. 
 

Students in the 7 th grade Project Based Learning class at Fremont Middle School watch a 3D printer in action. Grant money to purchase the printer was provided by The Fremont Fund at SCCF and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce.
