The Ogeechee Technical College Foundation recently held its annual scholarship luncheon on the main campus of the College. Forty students were recognized at the banquet for their academic achievement. The event was attended by benefactors, students, faculty, scholarship selection committee members, and guests of the students.
Russell Rosengart, President of the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation, welcomed the guests and Dr. Bill Perry gave the invocation. Barry Turner, Vice President for College Advancement, and Jennifer Cornwell, Resource Development Coordinator, recognized each student and presented them with a certificate.
Ogeechee Technical College President, Lori Durden, said, “Today, we acknowledge our partners who support our mission financially, and we honor those students who are the recipients of that support. I encourage all of you to get to know one another. Students, don’t just express your appreciation to our benefactors, but let them know how their contributions have really impacted your life. To our community partners, I ask that you get to know our students a bit because when you understand how you impact the lives of our students, their families, and the communities they will serve once they graduate, you will realize that contributing isn’t just an obligation or a feel-good gesture, but it is an investment that will pay dividends for many years to come.”
