This fully volunteer-based organization has come together in an effort to promote networking around the community and to provide training for technicians on an on-going basis. The Scholarship program was started this year as part of the Gary Robinson Memorial. It is intended to be an annual gift of education and a way for the PPMCA to give back to the community. Both IntelliTec College and Pikes Peak Community College received a $500 Scholarship to be awarded to the student of their choosing.
IntelliTec College HVAC student Joseph Connelly was chosen for this award because of his outstanding academic ability, perfect attendance and dedication to the program.
