The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation has received a $1,000 donation from the nonprofit organization Cobb Thanks You for Your Service to provide support for Chattahoochee Technical College students who are also U.S. military veterans.
Cobb Thanks You for Your Service Co-Chairs Mary Ansley Southerland and Mark Maloney presented the donation on Feb. 20 in Marietta to Chattahoochee Tech Advancement Coordinator Amanda Henderson. “We are very grateful for this support,” said Henderson. “These funds will be earmarked for things like emergency grants and paying for books needed by our students who are also veterans.” Chattahoochee Tech’s student population includes a large number of veterans, according to Henderson, who also noted that the college has been designated as one of the nation’s top military-friendly schools by Victory Media.
Proceeds generated from their annual “Because of the Brave” Veterans Day event funded the $1,000 donation given to the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation, according to Cobb Thanks You for Your Service Co-Chair Maloney, who is also a veteran. Cobb Thanks You for Your Service is a 501(c)3 organization headquartered in Marietta that is dedicated to serving U.S. military veterans and their families.
