Generous Donors Put Students on the Road to Success

(Marion) The Marion Technical College Foundation was thrilled to receive a 1973 Triumph Spitfire as a donation for scholarships. Owner Bob Flora of Marion made the generous gift of his British roadster to the foundation. Rob and Lynn Exline of Delaware, Ohio, bought the car.

“Marion Tech greatly appreciates the kind gifts from both the Flora and Exline families,” said Mike Stuckey, Director of the Marion Tech Foundation. “Scholarships help make college even more affordable and accessible. We value their support of our students!”

Flora took classes at Marion Technical College in the 1980s. He spent most of his career working at Fairfield Engineering. The retiree loved restoring automobiles and motorcycles and was particularly fond of this project car. We look forward to the car being restored and we will share updates as we receive them.

“This was a kind donation to help our students get to next!” said Dr. Ryan McCall, president of Marion Tech.
