Ogeechee Tech Cites
Community Participation

Dr. Dawn Cartee

As the calendar year 2007 nears its end, the Ogeechee Technical College Board of Directors recently reviewed a list of community activities in which the College participated during the past year.  The extensive list represents a broad cross-section of organizations and activities which conduct worth-while efforts within Ogeechee Tech’s service area.  Ogeechee Tech President Dr. Dawn Cartee stated, “We have known all along that we have a very generous group of employees and students, but when the list of activities is viewed collectively it becomes even more obvious how much Ogeechee Tech gives back to the community over a year.  It is amazing the positive impact a relatively small group of people can have when they have caring, giving attitudes.”
A partial list of the over 25 formal organizations and activities that were supported during 2007 are: Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch, Keep Bulloch Beautiful/Great American Clean-up, Special Olympics, Bulloch County Humane Society, Lions Club Sight Project, Joseph’s Home for Boys, the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County, the American Cancer Society, the American Diabetes Association, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, Statesboro Food Bank, and many others.

In reviewing the list of organizations supported by the College, Ogeechee Tech Board Chair Tommy David commented, “Ogeechee Tech certainly provides a great service to our area with its primary mission of education, but when you consider the additional impact that the College has in supporting so many worth-while projects the benefit is multiplied considerably.”  In addition to the formal, more organized support of the various activities, numerous OTC employees and students participate on individual levels by supporting many other organizations.  “You will find someone from Ogeechee Tech in many of the service organizations or activities that exist in our area,” stated Cartee.  “I am happy to encourage the participation, but frankly our people support these causes because they want to, not because they are forced to do so by administration.  In addition, we have our own fund-raising efforts through our annual iGot (I Gave to Ogeechee Tech) campaign which supports scholarships, equipment purchases, and other initiatives at the College, as well as our Adult Literacy Golf Tournament which supports our Literacy efforts—so we also support our own charitable causes,” Cartee concluded.
