SAVANNAH — The Savannah Technical College Community Council will host its fourth annual Tribute to Community STARs (Savannah Tech’s Achievement Recognition) on Friday, honoring some 20 individuals nominated for their service and dedication at work or in the community. The luncheon is at noon Friday in the Eckburg auditorium on the Savannah Campus, 5717 White Bluff Road. The event is open to the public, and tickets cost $50 per person.
“We know there are many deserving people who are seldom formally recognized for their good work,” Melinda Laager, executive director of the Savannah Technical College Foundation, said. “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 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 council is co-chaired by Melissa Phillips and Brian Smith and the recognition event is co-chaired by Heather Novak and Steven Stowers.   
Proceeds from the event will fund adult education and other student-related programs at Savannah Technical College.
