In memory of John and Connie Salyers, The Florence Rotary Club has established a “Hand Up” Fund at Gateway Community and Technical College.
The College received the endowment check Monday, the birthday of the late Rotarian, who, along with his wife, Connie, was a pillar of Boone County and Florence communities.
Hand Up Fund will aid and support eligible Gateway students with emergency funds to assist them with critical needs and to remove barriers to graduation.
The check will be presented to Gateway by members of the Salyers family and the Florence Rotary Club at 12:30 p.m. on Gateway’s Boone campus, Room 123. 500 Technology Way Florence, Kentucky, 41042.
