outcomes for our students and for our industry. We couldn’t do this work

awarded $2.7 million in college scholarships in 2019, including
$400,000 in CMiC-Allen Berg Memorial Scholarships. That's over $20

25 New Sponsors, And Growing!
a 501c3, nonprofit organization, ACE is entirely funded by private
contributions. It is our donors, many of whom give both nationally and
locally, that keep the ACE engine moving. ACE was proud to welcome 25
new firms to the list in 2019!
volunteers, from local Boards of Directors, to mentors, to guest
speakers, to job site tour guides, give so much of thier own time to
students each year. We are thankful for their energy, enthusiasm, and
commitment and know that we couldn't do this without them. The more ACE
volunteers we have, the more students we can serve.
