Legends Bank gives $100,000 in support of State Tech’s fundraising campaign

Published on April 13, 2016

The Foundation for State Technical College of Missouri has received a $100,000 cash donation from Legends Bank toward the Investing in Tomorrow’s Eagles major gifts campaign.

Funds from the gift are being used to support the renovation of the Osage County Community Center (OCCC) which is managed by State Technical College of Missouri.

“As the sole remaining bank still based in Osage County, we feel a unique responsibility to support local organizations in the same way that our local customers have supported us these past 103 years,” said John Klebba, president of Legends Bank.

“We made the decision to make this gift, the largest in our history, because of the tremendous impact both the college and the Osage County Community Center have had on this area,” Klebba commented.  “We are confident that under the stewardship of Dr. Claycomb and his staff, the money will be wisely spent.”

State Tech President Donald Claycomb stated that the community center is an important part of the Osage County fabric.  “State Technical College of Missouri takes its management responsibility of the Osage County Community Center seriously,” he said.  “The support by Legends Bank is an invaluable level of financial support as well as demonstration of general support for a county asset.”

Since 1993, the OCCC has served the needs of Linn and the greater Osage County area and has remained a vital necessity for community events.  The facility is in need of major renovations and repairs.  Private support of the OCCC ensures the college can continue to provide the facility at a reduced cost, or in some cases for free, to civic and community organizations.

The Investing in Tomorrow’s Eagles campaign is the first and largest fundraising campaign in the 55-year history of the college.  Through the campaign, the Foundation is seeking private support for capital improvements to the college and community center, program and equipment enhancements, and scholarship and technology endowment funds.  To learn more, visit http://giving.statetechmo.edu
