The Mission of the Nexstar Legacy Foundation is to recruit More Quality Technicians to the Industry!
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation is dedicated to attracting talented individuals to the heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical industries, by inspiring these people to discover the prestige, earning power and stability of careers in these fields. The foundation accomplishes this by being the leading resource for information on careers and training, as well as a source of financial aid.
Troops to Trades: Military Veterans’ Professional Training Program
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation has launched a new program to help military veterans enter the service industry. Our 2013 goal is to bring technical and/or service skills training to over 30 veterans and help them find jobs in the industry. Scholarships for veterans are now available. Click here to learn more.
Each year we offer up to 20 scholarships to students who are training to work in a business that provides home or commercial plumbing, heating/cooling or electrical services. This includes people pursuing management level positions in a business through the Management Scholarship application, as well as people pursuing technical training to work as installers and service providers, through the Technical School Scholarship application. Started in 2006, the foundation scholarship program has already granted $150,000 to students in this field.
The online application is now available and will close on April 12, 2013. There will be a second round of applications for the Technical School Scholarship program available May 15 through June 28, 2013. Click here to learn more.
Outreach: Increasing the Quality and Quantity of Technicians in the Industry
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation seeks to actively drive students into the plumbing, HVACR and electrical trades through education of students, businesses and schools. We will accomplish this through advocacy, education, and outreach to potential employees. Click here to learn more.
A Message From One Of The Founders
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation started as a dream to provide a channel for people in the home service industry to give back to their community. Businesses in the plumbing, HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration) and electrical industries provided funding to start the foundation in 2005. The foundation immediately began to serve the community through its scholarship program, designed to attract talent to these industries. In addition, the foundation continues to focus on fund raising through events and other activities in order to expand its services to the community.
“THERE IS NO RICHER EMOTION I know than the sense of contribution. The feeling that who you are as a person, how you have lived your life, what you have said and what you have done, has touched others in a deep and meaningful way, is an ultimate gift of life.
“IT IS YOUR LEGACY.”
