BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The Eastern Florida State College Foundation has received a $4,500 grant from an anonymous donor through the Community Foundation for Brevard.
The funds will provide scholarships for EFSC students who are military veterans and assist with the development of a new Mechatronics Lab on the Cocoa campus.
Mechatronics is a field that marries mechanical, electrical and computing systems to support advanced manufacturing. It is critical to the manufacture, maintenance and repair of high-tech products.
The lab will play an important role in the college’s Aerospace Technology and Engineering Technology programs that are training students for careers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and other high-tech fields.
“EFSC is a multifaceted jewel of our community,” said Theresa Grimison, Community Foundation of Brevard President & CEO.
“It is our honor to provide this support for two important programs through an anonymous fund holder of the Community Foundation for Brevard.”
Jennie Kriete, Director of the EFSC Foundation, thanked the Foundation for its “continued support of the college and its student.”
