The Springfield-based Musgrave Foundation has presented the OTC Foundation, the fundraising arm of Ozarks Technical Community College, with a grant for $15,000.  OTC will use the funds for scholarships for students in the College’s Allied Health programs.  The grant was presented during a press conference held by the Musgrave Foundation at OTC to announce the recipients of 35 grants totaling nearly $200,000.

“We are grateful to the Musgrave Foundation for their support of our students, and their recognition of the need for more qualified healthcare workers in our community,” said Cliff Davis, vice chancellor for Advancement | Workforce Development and executive director of the OTC Foundation.  “This grant will make it possible for students who may otherwise have been unable to pay for college to complete their education and improve both the physical and economic health of our community.”

Formed by Jeannette L. Musgrave in 1984, the Musgrave Foundation helps to fund selected charities in the Springfield area, particularly focusing on children’s services, healthcare and education, senior services, community betterment and the arts.  As of 2011, the Musgrave Foundation had awarded nearly $9 million in grants since its inception.
