GREENVILLE – Ansonia High School graduate Cody Stump was awarded a $1,500 HVAC scholarship from the Sam Barga Memorial Foundation this past April.
Stump is a 2017 Ansonia graduate and currently attending Upper Valley Career Center in Piqua to pursue his degree in heating and air conditioning.
Stump is taking his HVAC education seriously and has a 4.0 grade point average. He is set to graduate this December.
“We are so happy for Cody,” Sam Barga Memorial Foundation co-founder Linda Barga said. “We will continue this program as long as we can and as long as there is an interest in the HVAC field.”
The Sam Barga Memorial Foundation was founded by the parents of Samuel Barga, Scott and Linda Barga. The foundation has distributed funds to multiple missions including Hooked on Fishing – Not Drugs, St. Mary’s School families, Upper Valley Career Center – HVAC Department, Greenville High School wrestling and its own HVAC scholarship program.
The foundation has received personal donations and fundraises with an ongoing gift card program. The local Scrubs softball team that Sam played with has also organized fundraising events and donated funds to the foundation.
