The Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation's twelfth annual Red Carpet Gala, held on August 12, 2017, on the Griffin Campus, received well over 350 guests who enjoyed an evening of fine dining, music, and fundraising. The guests eagerly demonstrated support for Southern Crescent Technical College through their lively participation in a reverse raffle and by generously bidding during both a silent and a live auction.  Early estimates indicate that proceeds from the event will be in excess $56,000 with that money going to support the needs of the College including student scholarships.  The evening culminated with Carole Proctor and Kimberly and John Asbell splitting the $5,000 grand prize in the reverse raffle and donating $1,000 back to the Foundation.

Evan Stitt, SCTC Foundation Trustee, enlivened the crowd as the event's emcee. Foundation Trustee Randy Howell and The Party Time Band provided the evening's entertainment, playing a variety of musical selections which encouraged the guests to dance.

SCTC President Dr. Alvetta Thomas expressed gratitude on behalf of the College and thanked those in attendance which were comprised of representatives from forty-one area businesses as corporate sponsors and dozens of other faithful friends of the College.  Attendees had an opportunity to bid on approximately 250 silent and live auction items and in-kind services which were donated from nearly 200 individuals and businesses.  Silent auction items ranged from jewelry, vacation trips, handmade pieces, home décor items, artwork, autographed sports memorabilia, electronics, fine dining coupons, and an assortment of other items and services.

Dr. Thomas stated, “Tonight is a grand night for Southern Crescent Technical College. The campus has never looked so elegant, and the eager participation of our guests truly overwhelms us.  We could not have asked for a more impressive turn-out for this important event I want to thank all of the businesses and individuals for their overwhelming support of the College and our students.  These partnerships enable us to carry out our mission and to provide the workforce training needed to stimulate our local economy."

During the event, a special presentation was made to the Dundee Community Association for their recent gift of $1,000,000 to the Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation. This gift officially renames Building 200 on the Griffin Campus the Dundee Education Technology Center.  A plaque and lettering were both unveiled and will be installed in the coming months.

The Red Carpet Gala was a phenomenal success, primarily due to the unwavering support of those who attended and those who so generously donated items for auction.   The Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation expressed its great appreciation when Foundation Chair Jack Smith stated, "The College deserves the very best we can offer in our support, and the communities have surely risen to the occasion with their attendance and their donations.  We are very thankful for their generosity and the opportunities it affords the students of Southern Crescent Technical College."

Foundation Trustee Nancy Blake said, "Attending the Gala this year was like attending a reunion. It was nice to be in the company of so many in our community who support the mission of Southern Crescent Technical College."

Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter presented a check for $345.00 to Griffin WAYPOINT at an award ceremony held on July 27, 2017 at the SCTC Veterans Affairs Center on the Griffin Campus. The donation was made possible partly through funds raised during the Armed Forces Day Car Show fund raiser held on May 20, 2017.

It was determined prior to the car show that a portion of the net proceeds from this event were to be presented to a local military chapter.  After reviewing the local charities, it was voted on and approved by the SCTC SVA to donate $150.00 to Griffin WAYPOINT.  Following that presentation, Dr. Alvetta Thomas, President of Southern Crescent Technical College surprised Ms. Sandra Brownlee from Griffin WAYPOINT with an additional $195.00 donation which was collected from the generous donations of faculty and staff of Southern Crescent Technical College. This brought the grand total to $345.00 donated from the students, faculty and staff of Southern Crescent Technical College.

During this event, Mr. David C. Keener, Past President, SVA, SCTC Chapter and Mr. Clinton Butler, Vice President, SVA, SCTC Chapter made the presentation to Brownlee and each reflected on the significant role that the SCTC SVA Chapter plays in advocating for veterans. Brownlee thanked those in attendance for the generous donation and commented that this gift will “go a long way toward helping veterans in our community.”

WAYPOINTS are sanctuary centers for Veterans designed to provide an integrated continuum of care that emphasizes access, quality, effectiveness, efficiency, and compassion.  These attributes of Griffin WAYPOINT were the determining factors in Student Veterans of America choosing to honor them with this donation.

Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) is making plans to begin offering the two semester program Electrical Lineworker, set to begin this fall semester at the Flint River Campus in Thomaston. This program has initially been targeted to high school students, although it is open to anyone interested in the program.

The Electrical Lineworker Technical Certificate of Credit program consists of 4 courses which provide students with the necessary knowledge and skill to gain employment as an entry-level lineworker with electrical utility companies, both public and private. Topics include lineworker organization principles, lineworker workplace skills, lineworker automations skills, and lineworker occupational skills.

“An entire generation of experienced linemen are retiring across the country and we’re seeing it firsthand at Southern Rivers Energy,” says Ernie Neubauer, Vice President of Engineering and Operations at Southern Rivers Energy in Barnesville, Ga. “The new Electrical Lineworker program offered at SCTC will not only help provide a skilled workforce for local utilities but also provide graduates with the opportunity for a rewarding, lifelong career.”

According to Dr. Mark Andrews, Executive Vice President at Southern Crescent Technical College, “When visiting with companies in our area, we kept hearing the same thing - the current labor force for utility companies is ageing with the retirement of baby boomers. It has become apparent that there is a large skills gap with potential new employees.  If graduates from the Electrical Lineworker Technical Certificate of Credit can pair their skills earned with a Commercial Truck Driving Certificate, it would make applicants extremely marketable when applying with utility companies.”

“We believe well-trained employees are more valuable to the co-op and can provide our members with the high quality of service they’ve come to expect,” says Neal Trice, President/CEO with Upson EMC. “That’s why we have partnered with Southern Crescent Technical College to encourage future linemen into taking courses to help improve on-the-job skills through their Apprentice Lineworker Program.”

John T. Harkness, Jr., Vice President of Distribution Services at Central Georgia EMC agreed, “With improved economic growth and a maturing electric utility work force, Central Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (CGEMC) recognizes the need for expansion of our electric utility work force. Over the past couple of years, CGEMC has encountered difficulties hiring experienced or highly skilled line workers. The Electrical Lineworker program at Southern Crescent Technical College addresses our need and CGEMC fully supports it. This is an excellent program to assist potential employees with developing skills that could lead to a rewarding career path in the electric utility industry.”

Four Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) students recently participated in the culinary trip of a lifetime as exchange students at the Lakes Hotel School at Kendal College in Cumbria, United Kingdom. During their month-long stay, SCTC students Robert Cannon, Mary Holmes, Dominic Green, and Tina Sweatman were able to study and work under top chefs in various local eateries including a Michelin-rated restaurant as they learned to prepare authentic European cuisine.

Students embarked on this journey on May 18, 2017 and returned home on June 15, 2017. During the day, the students studied under Kendal College’s Chef Richard Axford and his team of culinary instructors where they worked alongside Kendal College students to prepare food for the two College restaurants, The Castle Dairy Restaurant and The Restaurant at Kendal College.

“We had a chance to work on both the serving side and the preparation side of the restaurant as well as the pastry and savory side of the kitchen. I was able to learn their unique techniques and philosophies about the food they prepared,” Dominic Green said.  “It was an amazing experience and so different from my job working in a quick-serve restaurant in an American kitchen.  My culinary skills were put to the test and it was a great learning experience.”

The Lakes Hotel School at Kendal College in Cumbria, United Kingdom has launched the career of hundreds of hospitality and catering professionals since its creation in 2004, with many of them going on to work in some of the finest hotels and restaurants, both nationally and internationally. The unrivalled facilities and dedicated teaching team allow for a learning environment that nurtures the talent of tomorrow. The kitchens, restaurant and café all operate on a commercial basis, giving students the kind of real-world experience that prepares them for work in this exciting and challenging environment. During their time at the Lakes Hotel School, students have the opportunity to work with top chefs and develop a real understanding of the value of Cumbrian food and Classical Cuisine.

The four SCTC students each received a $2,000 scholarship to offset the cost of the trip. The scholarship opportunity was provided by the Culinary Arts Advisory Committee and the Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation with funds raised from the SCTC Food and Wine Pairing Event held in April of this year under the leadership of SCTC Culinary Arts Program Coordinator Chef Patrick Boutier.

These students stayed at a bed and breakfast adjacent to Kendal College, which made for convenient access to their daily activities. SCTC Culinary Instructor Chef Barry Levey accompanied the students for the first portion of the trip. Chef Levey made a connection with a local restaurant owner where students were able to participate in an additional one-day internship under Chef Leon at The Moon on High Gate. Tina Sweatman stated, “Chef Leon shared with us the practical knowledge that goes along with owning a business and working in a kitchen and talked to us about the financial responsibilities of running a successful restaurant.  It was a great experience to be a part of and especially interesting to work with him because he knew all of his recipes by heart. ”

According to the students, they all felt that their training in the SCTC Culinary Arts program sufficiently prepared them for the tasks presented on the trip. They were able to quickly adapt their knowledge to the different styles and methods presented in the kitchen.  This overall experience gave them the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of European cuisines and cooking techniques. Robert Cannon said, “While we may use many of the same foods, we definitely noticed distinct differences in their cuisine. They used a large number of purees to accompany their meals, pickled and cured foods were incorporated in nearly every course, and, charcuterie is a staple in almost every restaurant. We loved the food, but as we neared the end of our trip, we were able to cook Southern comfort food for the group and they absolutely loved it!”

The educational experience abroad was not limited to the kitchen. Cannon continued, “The Lakes District and surrounding countryside are beautiful. We enjoyed walking around the city of Kendal, especially near the river. We grew to know several of the students and town’s people who helped us learn the history and many facets of British culture.” During their trip, students were able to travel on weekends, including an excursion to London to see popular tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the London Bridge.

“Thanks to the remarkable hospitality and kindness demonstrated by the Kendal College culinary team, our students felt welcome, protected and any initial hint of fear or apprehension immediately disappeared. As a result, their study abroad experience became a wonderful journey of personal discovery and growth, forever transforming their perspective on future life and career,” Chef Boutier commented. “As an educator, I think Study Abroad Programs contribute tremendously to the enrichment of our educational system by not only exposing our students to different cultures, flavors and landscapes, but more importantly, by providing our students with the opportunity to develop and hone essential critical thinking skills. The same critical thinking skills will become so important as they grow into their careers and access management level positions.”

Chef Axford stated, “It’s been a pleasure to meet, nurture and have a lot of laughs with the fantastic students from Southern Crescent Technical College. Tina, Dominic, Robert and Mary are different in so many ways and their abilities must not be underestimated. To come to England and perform so well is a testament to the quality instruction at Southern Crescent Technical College. We are sad to see them go but I hope a lifetime memory has been achieved.”

Just before their return, Mary Holmes stated, “I realize that I should not be afraid of what’s outside of my comfort zone. This trip has allowed me to catch the travel bug, even if it’s just within the United States. I want to travel, experience different cultures, and add to my culinary repertoire.”

 

Dr. Alvetta Thomas (right) presents outgoing board chair Scott Swafford with a plaque for his service.

At the June 21st meeting of the Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) Board of Directors, President Dr. Alvetta Thomas recognized Scott Swafford at his last meeting for his twelve years of faithful service to the College.  Swafford has served on the board for the past nine years and as chair for the last two years.  Prior to serving on the SCTC Board of Directors, he served on the Flint River Technical College Board of Directors and Board of Trustees.

“I have enjoyed serving the College both on the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors. I look forward to staying involved at some level and will always be a champion for Southern Crescent Technical College.  This College does great things in all of our communities by training graduates to meet the workforce needs of local business and industry.”

Swafford continued as he expressed his gratitude to the other board members of SCTC for their efforts to become “one college” after the merger and for their role in creating opportunities for the citizens we serve.

Dr. Thomas stated, “We cannot thank Scott enough for his steadfast support of Southern Crescent Technical College in the community. He has been a diligent servant, a strong leader and was pivotal in the success of the merger between Flint River Technical College and Griffin Technical College.  I know that I can call on Scott at any time and he will always be ready and willing to assist.”

For his service and support, Swafford was presented a plaque from the College, a plaque from the Technical College Directors Association and a clock machined by students in the Machine Tool Technology program and painted by the students in the Auto Collision Repair programs at Southern Crescent Technical College.

Scott serves as the Chief Operating Officer of United Bank and represented Upson County on the Southern Crescent Technical College Board of Directors.

The Southern Crescent Technical College Board of Directors serves both in a community advisory capacity and in a limited administrative capacity, performing certain oversight responsibilities as designated by State Board policy. The local Board is comprised of 14 members from the business and industrial communities from nine counties in the service area comprised of Butts, Fayette, Henry, Jasper, Lamar, Pike, Spalding, Taylor and Upson counties.
