MSH Foundation Launches Scholarship Program

DENVER, CO – Making Strategy Happen (MSH) Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its new scholarship program with the Community College of Aurora (CCA) Foundation that will support students pursuing a degree in business.

MSH Foundation is the charitable arm of Execution Specialists Group (ESG), a strategy execution-focused consultancy,  that focuses on positively impacting communities by supporting non-profit organizations that empower those committed to achieving self-sufficiency and personal success. The Foundation’s new scholarship program is designed to help students reach their full potential.  The Scholarship is awarded annually to a business student offering financial support to their degree as well as the opportunity to gain practical experience as an intern with ESG.

“MSH Foundation seeks to impact the local community where we live and work by helping people transform their lives,” said Mark Newhall, President of the MSH Foundation. “A scholarship program is a natural fit for the Foundation and it is our hope that it does make a difference to a student who is already committed to furthering their education.  We’re  excited to partner with Community College of Aurora and their Business Department to make it happen.”

The ESG scholarship is helping make college possible for CCA students who are pursuing a degree in business.  This $1,000 scholarship helps cover the cost of tuition, fees, and books for one student each year.  In addition, the MSH Foundation’s  scholarship was matched through the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) to secure a $1,000 matching scholarship for a second business student.

“Through the generous partnership of companies like ESG and their Making Strategy Happen Foundation, CCA students have the resources they need to earn a college degree,” said John Wolfkill, Executive Director of the CCA Foundation. “For the majority of our students, they will be the first in their families to complete college. A scholarship like this is truly life-changing as it provides the path to career opportunities that help students realize their potential.”
