Satilla REMC Foundation Makes Significant Contribution to

 

 

 

Mr. Romeo Reyes (right), Satilla Rural Electric Membership Corporation (REMC) CEO/President;  Jim Tucker (left), Satilla REMC Foundation chair; and Sue Johnson (not pictured), P. R. coordinator, met with Okefenokee Technical College President Dr. Glenn Deibert (center right) and Cindy Tanner (not pictured) last month to award the OTC Foundation $5,000 for educational advancement.

Dr. Deibert accepted the contribution on behalf of the OTC Foundation Board. Tucker explained that funding for the award was made possible through voluntary contributions of Satilla REMC members.  The purpose of the gift is to get needed, but unavailable funds, into technical colleges within the nine-county Satilla REMC service area and to enhance educational opportunities for as many students as possible.

Dr. Deibert briefly updated those present on the latest information about the Altamaha Technical College and Okefenokee Technical College merger. Both technical colleges are in the Satilla REMC service area. Deibert also thanked Satilla REMC officials for their support and asked them to express his gratitude to the members, as well as the Satilla REMC Foundation Board and REMC Board, who support the program and manage it.

“This past year has been especially busy for the OTC Foundation,” stated Tanner, executive director. “We had more requests than ever, and the overall need was greater. Your annual contribution is so very important to us. We sincerely appreciate it.”

The funds will be used to support student and program success through student scholarships, equipment purchases, and other technical program projects that advance the work of the college, with the majority of the funds designated to assist students with tuition and books.

Ms. Johnson noted that members of Satilla REMC have invested more than $85,000 toward the educational futures of students who attend Okefenokee Technical College.

“The Satilla REMC Foundation is proud to partner with Okefenokee Technical College and the OTC Foundation to provide educational opportunities to students attending technical colleges in its nine-county service area,” said Reyes.  “The members of Satilla, through their voluntary contributions, reinforce the belief that the responsibility of an educated workforce should be shared by the community.”
