Submitted on: 03-26-2012

The Daniels Fund donated $24,000 to Aims Community College to provide need-based scholarships for adult learners interested in the college’s Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic programs.

“The Daniels Fund recognizes Aims Community College as a leader in preparing students to become highly skilled first responders,” said Aims President Marsi Liddell. “Their generous gift will directly benefit not only our students, but also our communities that are served by these fine men and women.”

Aims EMS programs include EMT Basic, Paramedic, EKG Technician, EMT-IV and Medical Assisting – Phlebotomy.

Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television, established the Daniels Fund in 2000 to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Daniels Opportunity Scholarships are distributed to two- and four-year colleges and universities that provide scholarships to support non-traditional students.

“We are grateful for the ongoing support from the Daniels Fund,” said Julie Buderus, Director of the Aims Foundation. “These scholarships make a sustainable difference in the economic and physical health of our community.”
