AT&T regional office made a $20,000 donation to Savannah State University’s (SSU) “Closing the Gap” fund. Gary Sanchez, regional director of External Affairs AT&T Georgia, presented the check to President Cheryl D. Dozier on June 21 during a brief campus visit.
The fund was started by President Dozier and provides financial support to students in their final semesters to ensure they complete college. Students are eligible for a one-time award of up to $1,500.
“AT&T has a long-standing commitment to the residents and businesses of Savannah, and we also have an historic commitment to education and to supporting students who are working hard to prepare better futures for themselves and their families,” said Sanchez. “We are proud to support the hard-working students at Savannah State University through the Closing the Gap fund.”
