SAVANNAH — The Savannah Technical College Foundation Community Council will host the 2016 Tribute to Community STARs at noon Friday, April 1, in the Eckburg Auditorium on the college’s Savannah Campus, 5717 White Bluff Road. The event, now in its 10th year, honors 30 individuals nominated for their service and dedication at work or in the community.
Nominations will be accepted through Friday, space permitting. Sponsorships begin at $1,000 to nominate a STAR and include a table for 10. Tickets cost $100 per person; seating is limited. Call 912-443-3022 for information. Proceeds from the event benefit the college.
In celebration of the event’s 10th year, local artist Anita L. Ross has created a pen-and-ink design featuring a star. A limited number of signed giclee star prints will be available at the event with proceeds supporting STC student scholarships.
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. Alethia Zadach and Mike Miller co-chair the Community Council.
