TECH Legacy Society Inducts Five New Members

Five new members were inducted into the TECH Legacy Society this past Thursday, February 13th. The Legacy Society was created in 2018 as a way to honor donors that have reached a giving level of $5,000 or more in their lifetime to the TECH Foundation. The inaugural event in 2018 unveiled a new Legacy Wall at the TECH Administrative Offices in Downtown Hutchinson, honoring each person or business in the Legacy Society. "TECH facilitates the opportunities to be creative, to dream and to become inspired.  We provide a place to grow and to gain a sense of self worth while encouraging each person to reach the highest level of independence possible.  For the people we serve, TECH is the catalyst for a full and happy life," remarked Brenda Maxey, President and CEO at TECH during the event. The Legacy Society has also gives TECH a vehicle to raise awareness about the TECH Foundation and the importance of funding not only in the here and now but also 20, 30 and 50 years from now.

The event last Thursday included past honorees and new honorees as well as several TECH supporters and board members. Each new honoree received a framed print of "Marcus' Poppies" by TECH Artist, Marcus Mizell. The five new honorees for 2020 are:

  • Matt and Amy Bretz
  • Bob and Michelle Capps
  • Lucinda Piligian
  • Ron and Lovella Kelley
  • Ethan Kaplan and Melinda Young
