Hard Working Coastal Pines Students Honored With the Charles Eames Travel Fund Scholarship

October 15, 2018 09:59 AM

On Thursday, October 4, 2018, the Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Foundation hosted the Charles Eames Travel Fund Scholarship Luncheon on the College’s Waycross Campus. This semester, the Foundation was able to recognize thirty-four students who were chosen to receive a scholarship. Mr. Eames was present to award the ten attending students with their check as well as get to know the students and learn more about their educational goals. Through the generous support of Mr. Eames, the Foundation was able to award over $5,000 in scholarship funds to these deserving students.

In late 2013, Mr. Charles Eames established the first two Charles Eames Travel Funds, one with the James M. Dye Foundation at South Georgia State College (SGSC) and the other with the Okefenokee Technical College (OTC) Foundation, now Coastal Pines Technical College Foundation. The purpose of the funds was the same as now, to assist students with the everyday costs of traveling to campuses for classes and clinical rotations. Mr. Eames continues to fund the Foundation Scholarship each semester as he sees the great need for students to graduate and enter the work force.

Since its inception, the CPTC Foundation has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships and grants to assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Students and student success are top priority for the CPTC Foundation.
