Annual Opportunity Award Gala

Unfortunately, the event will not be held in 2021. We hope to resume in 2022.

Founded in 1929 as The Opportunity School, this annual signature event began with our 75th anniversary year in 2004. From the very beginning, this institution has been creating opportunities through technical education. The Foundation felt it was only fitting to honor those who have devoted their lives to the same undertaking. The Opportunity Gala honors deserving civic leaders for a lifetime of service in creating and enhancing opportunities for others to succeed. They have demonstrated a commitment to creating opportunities for Georgians both locally and at the state level. Past recipients include: Former Governor Zell Miller, Arnold Tenenbaum, Judge Griffin Bell, Tom Coleman, Dick Eckburg, Arthur M. Gignilliat, Jr., Bob and Alice Jepson, Howard Morrison, Stratton Leopold, Chef Jean-Yves Vendeville, Ted Kleisner, and Kevin Jackson.

Tribute to Community STARs

Tribute to Community STARs

October 15, 2021 – Mark your calendars

This event recognizes unsung heroes in our community. The first Tribute to Community STARs event was held in April 2007 and began a tradition of celebrating the achievements and contributions attained by the outstanding men and women in our community. Often times, we don’t take the opportunity to say thank you to others for a job well done or to recognize the impact one has made in the community. The Savannah Technical College Foundation honors these individuals that make a difference! Your gifts, through sponsorships, tickets, and silent auction purchases, support Savannah Technical College’s mission of workforce development in our region.
