BEN HILL CO., Ga. (WALB) - Georgia Power has donated $25,000 to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College for their second annual Women in STEM Symposium event.
The event is set for June 4.
The Women’s STEM Symposium reaches out to high school counselors, teachers and administrators across the 11 counties Wiregrass serves.
The purpose of the event is to discuss how to keep middle school to high school-aged girls engaged in STEM career fields.
