OFTC’s 2019 TOOLS Recipients Named
Sixteen Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) students were awarded the program specific tools they’ll need to jump-start their careers during the 20th annual Tools for Outstanding Occupational Leadership Students (TOOLS) Program held on the college’s Dublin campus, Tuesday, January 29.
The TOOLS Program is an event sponsored by OFTC’s South Foundation, the Evelyn and Louie Livingston Family Foundation, Morris Bank and Fairview Park Hospital. Each year students are nominated by their instructors to compete for the award and are selected by a panel of judges after an application and interview process.
Recipients receive the needed tools required for their careers so that upon graduation they’re able to seamlessly transition into the workforce without the burden of having to purchase necessary on-the-job tools. Students received items like stethoscopes, toolboxes, scrubs, lab coats and other essential items related to their program.
