This is such an exciting time for the College of Southern Idaho and the CSI Foundation! The Magic Valley continues to grow, change and provide new opportunities for students, businesses and the community at large. With the changing times, the Foundation also wants to make sure we are adapting and aligning with the college and the demands of the global economy. We are doing this is by supporting the new “Student Success Initiative” which expands the definition of success beyond a graduation rate to include adding value to both traditional and non-traditional students.

With a new focus in these areas, the Foundation has a tremendous opportunity to assist. One of the strategies our committee is exploring in order to meet these opportunities involves expanding scholarships to include paths to internships, certificates, and skill enhancement. These new paths allow non-traditional students opportunities to upgrade their skills which, in turn, can create upward mobility and efficiency improvements for our local businesses, in another word: Success.

Southern Idaho’s recent success in economic development will also recruit talent to the area to meet these demands. The foundation committees are exploring ways to expanding access to a larger range of potential students. By being able to provide scholarships to more non-traditional students through selection criteria defined by business partners who ultimately hire the students also defines success.

We want to recognize and express appreciation to the generous donors who make scholarships possible. By responsibly maintaining the assets of the Foundation with prudent investment strategies, we have not only been able to meet the intent of the donors, but have been able to award and impact thousands of students. The Foundation’s Executive Committee has challenged the Foundation to award $2 million dollars in the 2016-2017 year, which would be a new annual record for scholarships. Through the continued generosity of our donors, responsible investing and increased partnerships with our business community, we feel this goal is achievable even in these challenging economic times.

On behalf of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, we thank the donors, students and community for working together to achieve success. You are helping shape the lives of the next generation of leaders in the Magic Valley and beyond!

Presidents’ Message

The other day I had a chance to speak about the College of Southern Idaho Foundation and its reputation as one of the top community college foundations in the country. I was able to talk about why, and that story includes a wonderful Foundation staff led by a nationally-recognized Executive Director, and the single most important factor— you.

The CSI Foundation has enjoyed many gifts, large and small, one-time and on-going. One striking aspect is that in the thirty-one years of the CSI Foundation’s history, many gifts have come from people in the area who have never attended CSI! Citizens near and far recognize CSI transforms lives. For many donors, a son or daughter, spouse, relative or even a friend attended CSI and lived a life of improved opportunity as a result. The word “philanthropy” comes from the Greek, and in broad terms it means “love of humanity.” To my mind it represents one of the highest callings in our culture, and it is that dual benefit of the realized power of giving and receiving. At CSI, that gift means is a tangible belief in the transformative power of education.

Many of our students would be unable to go to school but for your generosity. Your commitment to this larger good is not just a financial assistance; it is also a confidence in each person, student by student, a belief in the transformative power of education, and the hope that such inspiration plants the seeds of what philanthropic citizenship is all about. You change lives, and one day, these changed lives will remember this gift, and in turn, I hope they will do the same for future students.

Thank you for being the driving force. Thank you for your trust in the College of Southern Idaho Foundation and for your philanthropy, your love of humanity.

Your donations make a significant difference to a CSI student. When you give the gift of a scholarship, you are not only supporting our students financially but also changing the future for the students and their entire families. These generous donations made between July 2014 and June 2015 have helped past, present and future CSI students by creating community connections that will last forever. Thank you for helping a CSI student!

Thank You CSI Foundation Community Donors

From a young age, I always knew I would attend college and graduate with a degree. Once high school approached and the years seemed to move quite quickly, I started to panic about what college to attend and how I was actually going to make that goal a reality financially. I was fortunate enough to have taken classes in high school through CSI that made me come to appreciate what they had to offer in many different aspects. Because of CSI’s diverse opportunities and great programs it was an easy decision for me to make. CSI is where I would spend the beginning years of my higher education.

Thanks to CSI’s Foundation scholarships and the other programs offered, I have been able to make that goal of mine a reality with their help for me and my education. As a student, I appreciate the smaller class sizes that CSI offers because of the relationships you are able to make with your classmates, professors, and the opportunity it allows for you to learn the material better. I know I wouldn’t have gotten this same kind of opportunity at a large university.

I was surprised to learn during my first year at CSI that I could be a part of the Honors Program. I applied and was accepted and am thankful for the opportunity it has given me to meet new people and the scholarships that come along with it. Thank you CSI Foundation for your support and generosity for me and my education while attending CSI.

Marjory Coleman always loved music and participated in school music programs while growing up in St. Anthony, ID and although he did not participate in music himself, music was always a part of John Coleman’s upbringing. His mother was a classically trained soprano and sang solos and in choirs throughout her life.

As a young mother, Marjory started piano lessons with Teala Bellini and took private lessons much of her adult life. She practiced late into the night after the children were in bed. She found great joy in her children’s music studies and performances. Whenever family or friends came to the house, she would ask the children to play. Impromptu recitals, Sunday evening programs for John, family reunion concerts and Christmas Eve programs were and continue to be all part of the family tradition as well as musical tributes to departed family members at funerals.

Marjory taught piano lessons for over 40 years and she taught 18 of her grandchildren. She was active in Twin Falls Music Club and served as festival chairman for several years. She conducted many church choirs and especially enjoyed working with the youth choirs. Among the 5 children and 26 living grandchildren, there are 10 music teachers, 23 pianists, 11 violinists, 1 violist, 2 cellists, 1 bassist, 3 drummers, 1 organist, 1 electric bass player, 2 trumpet players, 1 French horn player, 5 trained vocalists and all love to sing.

A life of love is one of continual growth, where the doors of experience are always open to the wonder and magic that life offers.~Leo Buscaglia

I am writing you this letter to give thanks and recognition to The College of Southern Idaho for enabling me to become who I am today.

In 2010 I decided to go back to school and pursue an education and a career in the Culinary Arts. I was in my late thirties and a mother of four teenagers as well as a wife. Driven to succeed, because this was my last chance, I made sure to absorb all that I could as I learned from Mike Johnson, Dianne Jolovich and other teachers not named.

In my first year of culinary school I had the opportunity to compete in the Skills USA Competition in Boise Idaho and won a silver medal, competing against Boise State culinary students. We were also able to network with other chefs in an association as we traveled and went to conventions. This also really helped my growth as a culinarian or (foodie).

While attending CSI, I was awarded a scholarship that helped me financially to continue doing what would become the best time in my life. The financial support helped me purchase books, knives, and have some experiences that I might not otherwise have received. I believe that if it wasn’t for CSI, and its non-intimidating environment, I would not have made the decision to go back to school, change my career and better my life.

I graduated with honors from The College of Southern Idaho, and was immediately placed in my current position as Executive Chef of Sodexo Dining Services right here on our beautiful campus at CSI.

Thank you again to The College of Southern Idaho and the Foundation for its generosity.

Sincerely yours,

Bridgett SlaterExecutive Chef Sodexo

When did you attend CSI and what was your major? I started at CSI in the fall of ’83 and my diploma says Associate of Arts and my major was Liberal Arts.

When did you graduate? I graduated in the spring of ’85.

Tell us a memorable experience you had while attending CSI. My memories revolve around my experiences as a basketball player. Playing for coach Fred Trenkle and having two very successful seasons as a Golden Eagle are wonderful memories. As a young athlete growing up in Jerome, I remember watching the Golden Eagles play and I remember thinking how cool it must be to play for the College of Southern Idaho. Then, as a freshman, running out onto the court for my first game as a Golden Eagle, I will never forget it! A “sold out” with passionate fans made the memory stick! How did CSI help change/shape your life? CSI laid the foundation for my independence, for my ability to think, and mostly facilitated my desire to compete. My time at CSI opened the next door in my academic and athletic which was an opportunity to play basketball and study at the College of Idaho. Thank you CSI for that first step!

Author of Sugar Linings: Finding the Bright Side of Type 1

“I started attending CSI in January of 2013. At first I was majoring in Nursing, but I have now switched to Business. I am so grateful for having CSI as an option because it has allowed me to get an affordable education and stay out of debt, which is not very common these days and will give me so much freedom upon graduating.

Another way it has given me freedom is that all my business classes have been online. In 2014, I took some of the money I would have otherwise spent on out-of-state tuition and backpacked through Europe alone for 5 months, all while taking full-time classes online from CSI. Shortly after I returned, I was crowned Miss Idaho and the freedom that online classes gave me allowed me to pursue both my education for part of the year and the job responsibilities of being Miss Idaho. Thank you so much for giving me an affordable and flexible education that has allowed me to pursue so many dreams simultaneously!

I grew up in a home in which both my parents had not gone to college; making the idea of going there myself seem a near impossible task. Along with that, my family went through some rough patches, including my parents getting divorced, which seemed to send my world into a tailspin. Even though my family was in shambles, I decided that I would secure my own future. In my effort to put myself through college, I actively sought out programs in an effort to receive the necessary funds, which led me to the Honors Program.

I then met with Brian Dobbs who showed me that I could go to college and that there were scholarships out there to help me succeed. The CSI Foundation Scholarships have allowed me to begin my studies as a civil engineer, along with being exposed to different, unique cultures. With these scholarships, I have been given hope that I can reach a higher level of success than my parents before me. I am truly grateful and extremely appreciative of the opportunities the CSI Foundation Scholarships has allowed me to take as I work towards achieving my success.

Ever since I was a small child I’ve wanted to go to college. “Going to college” being a metaphor for achieving all the things that my parents weren’t able to -with an emphasis on higher education. While I desperately wanted to “go to college”, I didn’t have any idea about how to actually do it.

When high school was over, I was faced with a labyrinth of choices, and no easy answers. After enrolling in CSI, I was still overwhelmed by the prospect of financing my education-never mind the actual academics behind it. However, with the help of the Foundation Scholarship that I received, I found out that some doors are easier to open when you have someone supporting you. The door to my education has been opened by many people, but none more so than those who allowed me to go to school without working two jobs or taking out loans. Instead, they have allowed me to give myself fully to my academics.

I’m not sure if I will ever be able to express the extent of my gratitude to those people. But any measure of success that I achieve, I dedicate to them.

As alumni of the College of Southern Idaho, Dawnette and I are proud to give back to the institution that provided us our start in our current career paths. When the two of us were students, we both endured many of the same burdens of attending college while trying to support ourselves in the world. Now, we are fortunate to have careers at CSI.

As instructors, we see the struggles that many of our students face while working hard to create a better life for themselves. Because of our past experiences that resonate with many of our students, we wanted to do something to help open the door of opportunity for them. We understand that many students are stressed due to finances, and this can easily impact their education.

It gives us comfort in knowing that we are able to reach out to the foundation to assist students who may be struggling in school because of monetary reasons. We have been giving to the foundation for many years now, and will continue this as long as we have the means to support the students of CSI.

Dawnette Reis & David Rodriguez - Employee Giving

Throughout our lives, many doors are opened for us. Sometimes it is a stranger holding a door open so that you can pass through; at other times, it could be a friend or family member coming to your aid to make sure the door doesn’t slam shut on you. Literally and figuratively, many people are there to make sure we get through the doors we want to without having to worry about being shut out. As a young mother with a young family, there have been times it appeared as if the door to completing my education would slam shut in my face, and my journey as a student would come to an abrupt end.

For me, being a student is an honor and privilege, a door which would not have been opened for me if not for the College of Southern Idaho Foundation. As a student, the doors to success were opened the moment I started my academic career at CSI, and thanks to the generosity of the Foundation, they have been held open. Now, I am a semester away from completing my English degree, and plan to continue towards obtaining both a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Anthropology. Without the kindness of the CSI Foundation, I would have had to put my dreams of higher education on hold without ever knowing if I could ever complete them. Now, those dreams are within my grasp, and the doors are wide open for me to walk through. Thank you, CSI Foundation, for your generosity in opening the doors of success for me and other students alike!

The James Moulson Scholarship was created in remembrance of a peace officer that loved doing his job. While growing up, Jim always wanted to be part of the law enforcement community. He was part of the Knott’s Berry Farm mounted patrol and then went on to be with the Buena Park Police Department. He later moved back to Idaho to join the Twin Falls Sheriff’s Department and then went to work for Jerome Sheriff’s before his End of Watch. The goal we have is to be able to help with some of the expenses of cadets while they are attending classes and to provide a scholarship for someone desiring a law enforcement degree.

In September of 2014, I began to realize that I had made the wrong career choice. Although I had spent approximately twelve years of professional service dedicated to the HVAC and refrigeration trade, along with many licenses and certifications, I no longer found happiness with my career. I spent too many long summer hours away from my family, too many weeks shipped out of town during the winters, and finding myself in too many dangerous situations. In January of 2015, I decided it was time for me to make a dramatic change in my life, and go back to school full time. I am currently married and together, my wife and I are raising two children.

Going back to school and quitting my full time job was not an easy choice for me or my family, but it was necessary for me to make a better life for all of us. Going back to school and changing my career path is the best decision I could have made at the time. I have decided to continue my education at CSI, working toward my Associates Degree in the Registered Nursing program before transferring to a university to complete my degree as a Nurse Practitioner.

When I first originally decided to make the leap and continue my education, my wife and I realized we were going to need a lot of financial help. Living on her single income with two children and our everyday expenses was not going to be an easy adjustment. We applied for financial aid and many different scholarships, but unfortunately, due to my previous wages, I was denied any grant money. Fortunately, because of the CSI Foundation and Honors programs, I am able to continue my educational goal. I am so appreciative of programs like these. I am now working harder than ever to achieve my highest GPA possible and work toward my end goal due to the financial programs available to me.

Southern Idaho’s “Magic Valley” Designated as a Top U.S. Manufacturing Community

U.S. Commerce Department Selects Southern Idaho based on strength of the region’s “All Things Food” Designation and Extensive Food Manufacturing Cluster

Idaho’s six county region known as “The Magic Valley” has been selected as a top 12 U.S. manufacturing community by the U.S. Commerce Department’s “Investing in Manufacturing Communities” Partnership – and one of four U.S. regions in the Food Manufacturing category. Southern Idaho secured a record-setting seven projects in 10 months during 2012-2013, including new investments from food giants Chobani, Monsanto, Clif Bar and Frulact Group as well as expansions of Glanbia Foods, McCain Foods and Calva/Brewster.

The College of Southern Idaho has been busy investing in training and development capacity for this pivotal recognition of the Food Manufacturing growth in Southern Idaho and we are thrilled to expand that support through the All Things Food Manufacturing Community initiative. In 2014-2015, the College launched a Food Processing Technology program and established a CSI Workforce Training Center to support current and future developments in the Magic Valley Food Manufacturing industry. With this comprehensive support and partnership, state of the art food processing lab, and flexible workforce training options; CSI is ready to take our region to the next level in Food Processing.

My name is Rocky Ferrenburg, and this is my third year at CSI. I am anticipating graduating with degrees in Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice: Corrections Specialist, Sociology, and Political Science. Before I came to CSI, I had a totally different life. I was an IV drug user, and living off the streets. That was almost four years ago now. The CSI Foundation has definitely played a role in my transformation.

When I received my first scholarship from the foundation for having a 4.0 GPA, I was beyond honored. As it was a total surprise, I was left with a distinguished feeling of worth. People who didn’t even know me saw my hard work and were willing to reward me. This was phenomenal, when so many that didn’t know me could very well condemn me. It was at this point that I had further motivation.

I began to discuss the idea of a distance Honors program with Professor Brian Dobbs in the fall semester of 2014, and in the spring of 2015, I was an honor student. The CSI Foundation awarded me another scholarship. The foundation has shown me that the hard work I have put into revamping my life is beginning to show through. Once again, people who do not know who I am, and that in possibly any other circumstance, may have checked their wallets when leaving my presence. Instead, they pat me on the back and can see a man doing what is needed. It is this recognition, above the financial assistance, that pushed me further in making more positive educational and life choices. Thank you.

Rocky Ferrenburg

Asset management is an important function of the Foundation. It includes oversight of investments and a balancing of long-term strategies. Optimizing the annual disbursement of scholarship dollars while enhancing the value of core resources is important. Over the years, and under careful management, the Foundation has been able to disburse scholarships while increasing its assets.

CSI Foundation Assets

Total amount of scholarships and grants awarded in the past five years

The CSI Foundation Scholarships have helped open a variety of doors for me as a student. I have been given the opportunity to attend CSI for almost 3 years now. The CSI Foundation scholarships have helped me with my education through buying books, or paying my student fees and with some tuition. The biggest door that has opened for me was my participation in the Disney College Program, which allowed me to work for the Walt Disney Company in Walt Disney World in Florida for 6 months. I learned how to work well in customer service as well as participated in courses in Creativity and Innovation and Performing Arts. I learned how to work successfully for one of the largest companies in the world as well as received a partial education from the Walt Disney Company. Without the CSI Foundation Scholarship I would have never found out about this program and participated in it to create one of the best experiences of my life. From this experience I discovered that I want to pursue Stage Management and Technical Theatre as a career for my future. I am forever grateful to have received this scholarship and hope that others can also benefit from this scholarship.
