The SRTC Foundation is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to promote the cause of higher education and expand educational opportunities to the students of SRTC. The Foundation strives to create Scholarships and endowments and assist in the financing of capital improvements and other college-related expenses. A few of the Scholarships offered and awarded this semester were:

The Lillie Jackson Gregory Memorial Scholarship, in honor of the late Lillie Jackson Gregory. For 23 years, Lillie Jackson Gregory served as the Clinical Coordinator for the Radiologic Technology program at the former Southwest Georgia Technical College, now SRTC. On June 29, 2010, Lillie passed away after a valiant fight over several years with cancer. Her dedicated service to SWGTC proved to be one of her life’s passions—enabling her to impact the lives of her students and prepare them for rewarding careers. To honor her memory and her service to SWGTC and the Radiography profession, this Scholarship, was established in her name with generous donations from family, friends, colleagues and others whose lives she touched. This scholarship will be awarded each semester to a student with a 2.0 GPA enrolled in the Radiology Technology Program.

The Hill-Harrell Scholarship, which was founded by Dr. Freida Hill-Harrell, former President at Southwest Georgia Technical College. While her career led her through various positions within the Technical College System of Georgia, South Georgia has always held a special place in her heart. Dr. Hill-Harrell and her husband, Mr. Bill Harrell, have decided to support the students at Southern Regional Technical College while they pursue their educational dreams. It is their mission to support students in need to ease the burdens of attending college.
