Fitzgerald, Ga - The Telecommunications and Security Technology Diploma program has produced many successful graduates over the years and has an in-field job placement rate of 100%. To help students be successful in this growing field, the Tools for Telecommunications Technology Scholarship Fund was created by GoFroe, LLC of Fitzgerald with a gift of $500. The scholarship fund was designed to help purchase tools for students that want to begin a career in Telecommunications. This scholarship is for students attending Wiregrass Georgia Technical College on the Ben Hill-Irwin campus in the Telecommunications and Security Diploma program. Each scholarship is to be awarded on the basis of a creative endeavor. This may be in the form of a written project, a research effort, an audio, film, interactive media or similar presentation as long as it can be clearly defined as creative in the area of telecommunications. The winner of the scholarship is Brad McCranie who presented a power point titled, “My Journey” about his career short and long term goals. Wiregrass appreciates the generosity of GoFroe, LLC for this donation to assist students in this field.
