Scholarship Spotlight

The Ohio Desk/Don Pilch Endowed Scholarship Fund 

The Ohio Desk/Don Pilch Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Don Pilch, a valued former sales manager for Ohio Desk who was known for his enthusiasm, friendship and warmth. Ohio Desk is Northeast Ohio’s leading provider of premier workplace solutions including custom interior design services, move and asset management, furniture and architectural products, and rental services. Since 2008, this scholarship has supported students enrolled in nursing or other health career programs at Cuyahoga Community College.

Don’s wife, Katie Kern-Pilch, began her career at Tri-C West in the early 70s. That educational experience led to a scholarship to Baldwin Wallace College, a master’s degree, and work in education, medicine and administration. She returns to Tri-C as a guest lecturer to encourage others toward careers in health and human services.

Your Impact

Tri-C is a driving force for the economic prosperity and future of our region. Your support for student success through the Tri-C Foundation is an investment toward a thriving Northeast Ohio now and for years to come.

Did you know.... 49% of Tri-C’s student population is eligible for the Pell Grant, indicating high economic need. Even through Cuyahoga Community College is the most affordable institution in the state of Ohio, without scholarship support, many students would not be able to afford the cost of tuition. 

Students earning degrees and credentials from Tri-C can move themselves and their families from poverty to prosperity.
