(Marietta, Ga. – Nov. 7, 2013) The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation Board was recently recognized with a unique distinction at the annual Technical College System of Georgia Leadership Conference held in Savannah. Of the 24 Technical College Foundations, only eight have earned the distinction of being a Role Model Board.
To achieve this recognition, the Board accomplished various metrics outlined by the Technical College System of Georgia Foundation Association as best practices. Criteria include board participation, training for the board and staff, attendance at graduation and chair fundraising events, among others.
“Following the merger of the three foundations, this is a wonderful recognition of our efforts to help advance the college,” said Board Chair Melinda Ashcraft.
Chattahoochee Tech Foundation’s mission is to provide support to the college, its students, and its programs. A 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, the Foundation seeks philanthropic support from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations seeking to make a difference in the lives of students.
“It’s great to be recognized by your peers for your accomplishments,” said Chris Knife, Executive Director of the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation. “I’m very proud to work with such a dedicated board.”
