Taco Bell Foundation Awards $10,900 for Career Pathways Programs

Today, Pride in the Tiger Foundation received a $10,900 grant from the Taco Bell Foundation to support students in the Marshall community.  The funds will go to financially support Marshall Public School’s development of its pathway’s programs through direct career experiences.  It’s to provide as many diverse direct experiences for students to help them gain insight and skills that can be transferred to post-secondary education, enlistment, or entrance into the workforce.  The desired outcome is to expose more students to more experiences starting at the middle level through high school that will aid in their career path decisions and other programs that educate and inspire the next generation of leaders.

“The Pride in the Tiger Foundation works to provide enhanced educational opportunities for youth. It is a privilege to partner with the Taco Bell Foundation in educating and inspiring young people in Marshall, said Krista Bjella, Executive Director of Pride in the Tiger Foundation.  “Together we are working to break down barriers to education for future leaders.”  

“Our Community Grants program is unique, because the funds are dispersed back to organizations in the local community they are raised in,” said Neil Borkan, Chairman of the Taco Bell Foundation.  “We are so thankful for the generosity of our partners, customers, and the Taco Bell team members that make it possible for us to continue serving youth across the country.”
