Valdosta, GA., AT&T provided a gift of $2,500 to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Foundation South for unrestricted use in workforce education at Wiregrass Tech. This is the third donation during the current academic year bringing the total to $8,500.

Courtney Brinson, Regional Director of External Affairs at AT&T, presented the gift to Dr. Tina Anderson, President of Wiregrass, and Dr. Penelope Schmidt, Executive Director for Wiregrass Foundation South. AT&T has been very generous to the Foundation over the years and many students have benefitted greatly from AT&T’s donations.

Over time, AT&T has given more than $50,000 to the Foundation, resulting in the recent naming of a computer lab for the company. Their continued support positively impacts students who are furthering their education at Wiregrass so they can advance their careers. This donation will be used to assist students with books, supplies and other much-needed educational expenses to help them with the resources needed to complete their education.

The students, foundation trustees, and college faculty and staff are very thankful of AT&T’s continued support for workforce development at Wiregrass.
