Eric Eicher, president, Alpine Bank Durango and FLC alumni, presented the first FLC Forever Loyalty Debit Cards to Dr. Steven Elias, dean of the FLC School of Business Administration and Skyler, the FLC mascot, accepted the card on behalf of Fort Lewis College President Tom Stritikus.
Alpine Bank has committed $100,000 to the FLC Forever Fund over the next 3 years, and made $50,000 available immediately. On Tuesday, June 4, 2019, the first two grants were awarded to the Grub Hub and Glenna Sexton Student Development Fund for $5,000 each.
The Grub Hub is a food security program that ensures students don’t have to choose between food and academics, providing free pantry items as well as a hot meal once a week. The Glenna Sexton Student Development Fund provides grants to help cover conference or training fees for eligible students seeking leadership and professional development opportunities. A campus committee will review grant applications and work with Alpine Bank and FLC leadership to determine how to award more grants across campus going forward.
Dr. Rebecca Clausen, associate professor of Sociology and Human Services at Fort Lewis College accepted the donation on behalf of the Grub Hub and Jeff Dupont, FLC vice president of Student Affairs accepted on behalf of the Glenna Sexton Student Development Fund.
