Remembering Matt Puchlerz Scholarship

Shay H.
Chicago, IL

Last year Matt Puchlerz, one of our co-founds, sadly passed away. Matt was one of the most talented individuals who loved to share his passion for design and development. He was a driving force behind Refresh Chicago and has been greatly missed.

Recently one of Matt’s digital media teachers from Starpoint High School has helped start a scholarship to honor his life and career. The first scholarship will be given out in May to a Starpoint Graduate who will continue their education in the field of web design or digital media arts.

To help raise money for scholarship Obtiva, one of our gracious sponsors, has started a Pledgie campaign with the goal to raise $5,000. Should Obtiva raise $5,000 Killswitch has pledged to match the $5,000 and make two scholarships available.

Currently Obtiva has been able to raise $4,000 and is only 20% away from fully funding a scholarship. It would be amazing if we could all chip in to help raise the last 20%. Any support you guys could provide would be really appreciated. Please feel free to also share the Pledgie campaign with your friends.
