OFTC’s 2020 TOOLS Recipients Named

Thirteen Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) students were awarded the program specific tools they’ll need to jump-start their careers during the 21st annual Tools for Outstanding Occupational Leadership Students (2020 TOOLS) Program held on the college’s Dublin campus, Tuesday, January 14. 

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 program-specific tools required for their careers so that upon graduation they’re able to seamlessly transition into the workforce without the burden of purchasing necessary on-the-job equipment or tools. Students received items like stethoscopes, toolboxes, scrubs, lab coats and other essential items related to their program. 

This year’s recipients were: 

Karl  Eburne, Sr., Dublin, Medical Assisting 

Zachariah Deal, Cochran, Welding 

Gemma Arnold, Dexter, Pharmacy Technology 

Kendra Lamar, Eatonton, Respiratory Therapy 

Sarah Stewart, Sandersville, Radiologic Technology
