ATHENS, GA (8/17/2017) –On August 17th, Athens Technical College showed its gratitude to morethan 180 employees through its Faculty Staff Appreciation Celebration.
The event was held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. inside the Life Sciences Building, on its Athens Campus, and included a barbeque lunch catered by Members Auto Choice and popsicles by King of Pops. The event also included music, giveaways, and interactive games.
"Our staff members are an integral part of Athens Technical College's success," said Athens Tech Foundation Director Jennifer K. Griffeth. "This event is our way of saying 'thank you' to our family that connects and supports the students."
The Athens Tech Foundation jumped at the chance to support President Andrea D. Daniel's request to host this event. They saw it and an opportunity to serve as a way to build community relationships, promote Foundation awareness, and praise the College's staff for a great year.
The Faculty and Staff internal campaign at the College provided over $12,000 in support this year. Their support to the Foundation continues to provide the program support and student scholarship support to Athens Technical College.
