Representatives from the Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) Student Government Association (SGA) on the Thomasville Campus collected items for the American Red Cross for their Spring 2017 Community Service Project.

Members collected towels, socks, and other toiletries. The anticipated goal of this community service project was to obtain enough items to fill 15 tote bags. Donations and collections, however, exceeded the goal. Items will be distributed to various families throughout the following service counties: Atkinson, Bacon, Ben Hill, Berrien, Brooks, Charlton, Clinch, Coffee, Cook, Echols, Irwin, Jeff Davis, Lanier, Lowndes, Pierce, Telfair, Thomas, Ware, Wheeler, and Wilcox counties.

The purpose of the of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to: contribute to and promote the ideals, objectives, and goals of SRTC; promote school pride, community awareness, and citizenship; improve student morale; provide a forum for students’ expressions; and develop leadership skills.

The SGA membership is a broad representation of students from all programs of study. Membership consists of two representatives from each of the TCSG state recognized student organizations on each campus (Phi Beta Lambda, SkillsUSA, and National Technical Honor Society); and one representative on each campus from each of the four vocational program areas.

SRTC offers over 148 degree, diploma, and certificate programs that are designed to get you quickly into your desired career, and 27 general education courses that transfer to the University System of Georgia institutions and 19 private colleges and universities in Georgia.
