ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Technical College Foundation will be presented with a $2,500 scholarship donation check Tuesday morning in the Executive Board Room of the Logistics Education Center, by AT&T District Director, Courtney Brinson.

"We are pleased to provide the scholarship donation again this year to Albany Tech and know it is needed now more than ever," said Brinson.

"We are very appreciative of AT&T and their donations to help our students," said Dr. Anthony Parker, President of Albany Tech.

AT&T presented Albany Tech Foundation with a scholarship donation of $3,000 just last July.

The college has received almost $70,000 from AT&T in the past five years. The money goes toward the college's general scholarship fund to help students in need.
