The Student Government Association (SGA) at Northeastern Technical College recently received a Wal-Mart Foundation Grant.
“We are extremely proud of the students in our student government association,” Dr. Jimmie Williamson, president of the college, said. “They initiated this proposal, and it's good to see their hard work is paying off.”
Members of the SGA have been involved in planning and holding fundraising events to help in the purchase of a new sign for NETC.
“We are glad to help with this cause,” Amarie Whyte, Cheraw store manager for Wal-Mart, said. “Education, especially higher education, is extremely important to our associates, so supporting Northeastern Technical College is something we can do to support the interests of our employees, and the community where we live. We live here too, so we're more than happy to help.”
This is the first grant Northeastern Technical College has received from Wal-Mart.
