SAVANNAH — AT&T awarded $15,000 to Savannah Technical College Foundation last week for third place in the inaugural $20k for 2020 workforce development competition.

The foundation competed with six other organizations from across the state to generate social media activity in support of their work.

"All of the organizations who were competing in AT&T’s $20k for 2020 competition are true assets in their communities, doing the vital work to identify and address the needs of our workforce here in Georgia," said Bill Leahy, president of AT&T Georgia.

Savannah Tech’s entry featured a two-minute video about Savannah’s Summer 500 program. (vimeo/savannahtech/summer500). During the nine-week program, students invested at least 32 hours per week, split between work experiences with their mentoring employer. The students, who have attended classes STC on Fridays, will earn both high school and college credit for Interpersonal Relations and Professional Development through Move On When Ready.

Lanier Technical College and Dekalb Workforce Development finished first and second respectively.
