Dr. Deibert accepted the donation on behalf of CPTC Foundation Chair Larry Paulk and the Foundation Board of Trustees. He thanked Satilla REMC officials for their support and asked them to express his gratitude and that of the College Community to Satilla REMC members, the Satilla REMC Foundation Board, and REMC directors.

The Satilla Rural Electric Membership Corporation (REMC) Foundation donated the $20,000 gift to the CPTC Foundation to ensure higher education and career opportunities for as many area citizens as possible. The significant and generous donation will be used to support college access and student success at Coastal Pines Technical College through student scholarships, program equipment, capital projects and other worthy investments that promote a highly skilled workforce for Southeast Georgia.

The purpose of the gift is to enhance educational and career opportunities. Funding for the award was made possible through voluntary contributions of Satilla REMC members.

Coastal Pines Technical College was established from the consolidation of Altamaha Technical College (est.1989) and Okefenokee Technical College (est. 1965) and began offering classes July 2014. Prior to the merger, the Satilla REMC Foundation championed the mission of the former colleges and provided financial support.

With the $20,000 contribution, Satilla REMC members, through the Round-Up program, have invested $200,000 toward the educational futures of area citizens as a result of donations to the Altamaha Technical College Foundation, Okefenokee Technical College Foundation, and now Coastal Pines Technical College Foundation.

 “The Satilla REMC Foundation is proud to partner with Coastal Pines Technical College and the CPTC Foundation to provide educational opportunities to citizens in our nine-county service area,” said Reyes.  “The members of Satilla, through their voluntary contributions, demonstrate their belief that the responsibility of an educated workforce should be shared by the community.”
