Leadership Southeast Georgia Class of 2017 Provides “Hands Up” Scholarship for Three Regional Technical College Students

Leadership Southeast Georgia Class of 2017 Provides “Hands Up” Scholarship for Three Regional Technical College Students

(HINESVILLE, GA) Members of the 2017 class of Leadership Southeast Georgia (LSEGA) provided a “hands up” scholarship for three worthy regional technical college students recently.

The Class raised $500.00 to help two students from Savannah Technical College in the areas of aviation and accounting and one student from Ogeechee Tech in the area of nursing have the necessary funds they needed to continue their course work. Without this assistance, each one of these students would have had to drop out of school until they could raise the necessary funds to cover tuition and fees.

“It is not surprising members of this class stepped up and decided to give a hand up to students who needed assistance. It’s amazing how just a little bit of help makes such a great impact,” said Ruel Joyner, LSEGA Chairman.

Dr. Kathy Love, who was present at LSEGA’s 2017 graduation presentations, thanked the class on behalf of the students. “I know these students will never get the chance to personally thank each of you, but on behalf of Ogeechee Tech and Savannah Technical College, thank you so much for your generosity. Your efforts will make a difference.”

ABOUT LEADERSHIP SOUTHEAST
Beginning in January 1999, leaders representing the business, local government, and education communities set about the difficult task of creating a regional strategic plan for community and economic development. A regional leadership program brought together citizens from each of the 10 counties in the coastal region was envisioned as a means to reinforce the regional capacity to address challenges and capitalize on common opportunities. (The 10 counties of Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, and Screven and 35 municipalities comprise the Coastal Georgia region.) The program content focused on the assets of the area, as well as potential threats to those assets.

Since 2000, LSEGA has produced ten graduating classes and approximately 175 graduates. For more information, visit http://www.lsega.com/home.html
