The Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Foundation received a $10,000 grant from the Terry Thomas Foundation. The Terry Thomas Foundation, located in Glynn County on Sea Island, was established in 2004. Ms. Thomas passed away in 2011, but her Foundation continues to have a powerful impact on her community. Susan Goodhue, Executive Director of the Terry Thomas Foundation presented the check to Stephanie Roberts, Executive Director of College Advancement with Coastal Pines Technical College.
This grant will be used to help sponsor Free Application Day at Coastal Pines which is for prospective students who want to attend the college. Prospective students typically pay a $25 application fee for admission to the College, but the grant will help students who cannot afford to pay the application fee.
“We are so thankful for organizations like the Terry Thomas Foundation. Donations like this allow us to help those students who fall through the cracks. A $25 application fee may not seem like a large amount of money. However, to some it’s the difference in future that helps them support their family!” stated Stephanie Roberts, Executive Director of College Advancement for CPTC.
