Auditorium Seat Campaign
The new B. Frank Coggins Center is a state-of-the-art Industrial Technology Building which includes a 200 seat auditorium. This auditorium is utilized frequently by community groups as well as by the student body. Each seat in the auditorium features a brass Donor Recognition Plate in a prominent location on the armrest. Purchasing an auditorium seat and engraving the name of your company on the Donor Recognition Plate is an ideal way to advertise your company to a broad segment of the population. The Auditorium Seat Campaign is also designed for the individual who wants to honor or to memorialize someone special in their life. Many seats are still available.
To sponsor an auditorium seat, simply print a copy of the Auditorium_Seat_Order_Form Pledge_Card, provide the information requested on the card, and then mail the completed form to the Athens Technical College Foundation along with your check or money order for payment. Become a part of the Athens Technical College Legacy, a legacy that will benefit students for many years to come!
