ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Albany Technical College officially kicked off a new annual giving campaign Wednesday.
Students, faculty, staff, and community members gathered at the school's Wall of Giving.
The new campaign is called "Changing Lives: Paving the Way to a Powerful Future."
President Anthony Parker said many facilities around campus were completed thanks to generous donations.
He hoped Wednesday's kickoff will inspire more generosity.
"This is going to encourage our community to support us more because they will be able to see what we have done with their contributions in the past and hopefully continue giving to themselves by supporting Albany tech," he said.
The Albany Tech Foundation hosts fundraisers every year, including a "Roast" in the spring.
This year WALB's own Karla Heath Sands will be the "Roastee".
