Georgia Power Company Foundation Again Donates $10,000 to OFTC
For the second year in a row, the Georgia Power Company Foundation donated $10,000 to Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) South Foundation after being selected by the Georgia Power’s Foundation Board.
The donated funds will be used for purchasing the needed equipment to help jumpstart OFTC’s new Construction Management Program which will be taught at the Heart of Georgia College and Career Academy in Dublin. This program will be offered to both traditional and high school dual enrollment students and was expected to begin in Summer 2020 upon Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) approval. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the start-date has been delayed to the Fall of 2021.
“We are so thankful to have been selected by the Georgia Power Foundation Board to receive these funds,” shared Kathy Aaron, OFTC’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “It’s through donations like these that we are able to make a difference in the lives of those within our communities.”
