In 2013, EGTC began a partnership with MillerCoors to provide access to the Water Quality Management Technician program.  Their donation to the Emily Griffith Foundation provides scholarships to offset nearly half the tuition costs for students in the certificate program.   Since its inception, the program has supported 25 students.  94% of program graduates have entered the workforce in entry-level positions in the water-utilities industry with average starting salaries in the low $40,000.

The Foundation also recognized Mollie Gilliland and Anna Jo Haynes for their personal commitments to lifelong learning.  Mollie partnered with Emily Griffith to create the Lucky’s Scholarship to provide full scholarships for refugees to earn certification in career and technical programs.  Anna Jo Haynes is the founder of Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers that provide safe, affordable childcare for the children of low-income families while they pursue educational opportunities to attain self-sufficiency.  She has been committed to educating the children of Denver for more than 50 years.
