STC Foundation celebrates 2011 Tribute to Community STARS

April 8 noon, Eckburg Auditorium, Savannah Campus

SAVANNAH – The Savannah Technical College Foundation Community Council will host the 2011 Tribute to Community STARS on Friday, April 8 at noon in the Eckburg Auditorium on the college’s Savannah Campus, 5717 White Bluff Road. The event, now in its fifth year, honors some 20 individuals, nominated for their service and dedication at work or in the community.

“We know there are many deserving people who are seldom formally recognized for their good work,” says Gail Eubanks, executive director of Institutional Advancement and Marketing at Savannah Tech. “This event allows their organizations to publicly thank them for the value they add to our community.”

Dr. Bertice Berry, best-selling author, comedienne and speaker, will deliver the keynote address.

The Tribute event is held each spring and is sponsored by the STC Foundation Community Council, a group of young professionals charged with expanding the local knowledge and profile of Savannah Technical College and its mission and with raising funds to support the college, its programs and students. The Community Council is co-chaired by Melissa Phillips and Heather Novak and the Tribute to Community STARS event is chaired by Gini Nichols.

Nominations will be accepted through March 31, 2010 space permitting. Tickets cost $50 per person – seating is limited. Call 912.443.3022 for information. Proceeds from the event benefit Savannah Technical College.
