AT&T recently contributed $20,000 to Savannah State University’s (SSU) “Closing the Gap” fund. SSU’s Closing the Gap fund provides financial support to students in their final semester, helping support college completion. Students are eligible for a one-time award of up to $1,500.
“AT&T has a long-standing commitment to the residents and businesses of Savannah, and we also have an historic commitment to education and to supporting students who are working hard to prepare better futures for themselves and their families,” said Gary Sanchez, regional director of External Affairs AT&T Georgia. “We are proud to support the hard-working students at Savannah State University through the Closing the Gap fund.”
“It is critical that we adequately support and prepare students to be successful at the college level and beyond,” said Cheryl D. Dozier, President of SSU. “We applaud AT&T for their continued commitment to student success by providing financial support to SSU’s ‘Closing the Gap’ fund for the purpose of assisting our students in their final semesters to ensure they have an opportunity to complete college.”
AT&T continues to invest in innovative education organizations, tools and solutions, working to position students for present day and future success. Savannah State University is the oldest public historically black college or university in Georgia and the oldest institution of higher learning in the city of Savannah. The university’s 4,900 students select majors from 30 undergraduate and six graduate programs in three colleges — Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Business Administration and Sciences and Technology — and the School of Teacher Education.
