Grow Wabash County donates 500 books to local high schools
19 Apr 2022
Wabash County, IN – Grow Wabash County recently paid a visit to every Wabash County high school to present each of them with a complete library of books from the Dave Ramsay “EntreLeadership” series.
The library of books features titles from entrepreneurs, business professionals and public figures about all aspects important to being an effective business person and leader. The purchase and donation of these books were made possible by a grant awarded to Grow Wabash County from the Don Wood Foundation (formerly the 80/20 Foundation Trust) to promote and support student entrepreneurship in Wabash County.
“We are thrilled to be presenting each of our local high schools with this library of great titles and we hope our student entrepreneurs find great value in the wisdom these books may impart on them,” Keith Gillenwater, president and CEO of Grow Wabash County, said. “As our communities look to the future, entrepreneurs will play an integral role in the development of new businesses, jobs and community investment. We are excited to see what great innovations these student entrepreneurs will bring to the table.”
Grow Wabash County has worked closely with the Wabash County school corporations, as well as partners including INGUARD and the Don Wood Foundation, to develop and foster an environment in Wabash County that fosters innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit for people of all ages.
Many of these student entrepreneurs will be in the spotlight this spring during Grow Wabash County’s third annual INnovate Wabash County student pitch competition on May 4 at the Eagles Theatre in downtown Wabash.
