Valdosta, GA – AT&T is a longtime supporter of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and has donated $2,000 to support the Foundations device loan program. The Wiregrass Foundation launched an electronic device loan program during Spring Semester when instruction was moved online due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Many students found themselves trying to take classes online without a laptop or any other device to finish their semester course work. The college was able to loan laptops and intel sticks to students. The Foundation will continue the device loan program even though face to face instruction is returning in the fall. This will ensure students are able to access their classes outside of the classroom and in case there is a shift to online during the semester due to COVID.
“The outbreak of the Corona virus helped us identify a new way to assist and support students. We are very appreciative of AT&T’s support of this new student program and their donation will allow us to expand the number of devices available for loan to students,” shared Wiregrass President Dr. Tina K. Anderson.
