June 2021: Our Donor of the Month is Garner Economic Development Corporation! A first-time donor, GEDC recently donated $250,000 to establish an endowment, which will provide scholarships to graduating seniors at Garner Magnet High School and South Garner High School who wish to further their education at Wake Tech.
For the first year, starting this fall, two students – one from each of Garner’s high schools – will be awarded scholarships of $2,200. In subsequent years, after the endowment is fully vested and is earning interest, the fund should support four student scholarships valued at approximately $2,500 per student.
A BIG THANK YOU to Garner Economic Development Corporation for your dedication to our students and community! We are grateful for your support!
Our vision is to become a dynamic community college foundation with the relationships and resources necessary to fulfill the unmet needs of Wake Technical Community College.
We believe in making an education possible for anyone in our community who wants one so that our region remains the best place to live and work in the world.
