STC to host Tribute to Community STARS

Posted: Updated:

The Savannah Technical College Foundation Community Council to host the 2014 Tribute to Community STARS on Friday.

STC will host the tribute at noon on Friday in the Eckburg Auditorium on the College's Savannah Campus, 5717 White Bluff Road. The event, now in its eight year, honors more than 20 individuals nominated for their service and dedication at work or in the community, while raising funds for the Savannah Tech Foundation scholarship fund.

The Savannah Technical College Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that exists to raise and disburse funds to support the College's efforts to enhance learning, workforce training and economic development in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty Counties.

The STC Foundation currently awards between $75,000 and $100,000 in privately-funded scholarships annually, but that total meets only a fraction of the overall need.

The Tribute to the Community STARS is an annual event that not only helps recognize the members of the community but also serves as one of the leading events to help students fund their high education.
