The CPTC Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee awarded six scholarships for spring semester. Those unable to attend due to work or testing conflicts were Christy Solomon (Wayne County), Kathryn Postin (Camden County), Brittany Esposito (Liberty County), Cassondra Andrews (Clinch County) and Belle Winful (Bulloch County).

The luncheon, hosted by the foundation, was held, not only to announce recipients, but also to give college personnel, foundation staff, and students an opportunity to meet and thank Mr. Charles Eames, who generously provides the donation for the Charles Eames Travel Fund.

Dr. Glenn Deibert, Coastal Pines Technical College President, thanked Mr. Eames for his contributions, which have benefitted numerous CPTC students and contributed to their college success.

Scholarship recipients introduced themselves and told a little about their college history.  They noted the miles they travel weekly to attend classes and clinicals. They shared their program of study, campus location and goals upon graduation. Some recipients travel as far as Valdosta and Albany for clinicals during the semester. Each one thanked Mr. Eames for making their financial circumstances easier for travel.

Generously Eames gives to several colleges in the southeastern part of Georgia to help deserving students to defray travel expenses.  He congratulated this group of students and told them about beginning his career and his career as a librarian in Georgia approximately 34 years ago after moving from Ohio.  He ended with, “I love south Georgia; it’s home, and I believe in education and giving back.”

Applications will be available mid May for summer semester, and awards will be announced by early summer. For more information about Coastal Pines Technical College and scholarship opportunities, visit www.coastalpines.edu.
