SB&T donates to SGTC Instructor of the Year

Sumter Bank and Trust City President and Americus Mayor Barry Blount presented a donation to the South Georgia Technical College Foundation on behalf of SB&T in support of the college’s 2015 Instructor of the Year program. He presented the stipend to Raven Payne at the college’s recent Instructor of the Year and GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership) recognition ceremony. Payne was announced as this year’s winner by SGTC President Sparky Reeves.

President Reeves thanked SB&T for its support of this program. “We appreciate SB&T’s partnership with South Georgia Technical College and their continued support to the Instructor of the Year program,” said Reeves.

Newly named Instructor of the Year Raven Payne thanked SB&T for the generous donation.

As South Georgia Technical College’s Instructor of the Year representative, Payne will compete at the Southern Regional level competition for a chance to become a finalist in the Rick Perkins Instructor of the Year competitions for the Technical College System of Georgia.

She is competing against the top instructors from each of the state’s technical colleges and a Board of Regents college with a technical division for the Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instructors.

The state winner for the Rick Perkins award will be announced at the Rick Perkins Award Ceremony on April 23rd in Atlanta. Throughout the next year, the winner will serve as an ambassador for technical education in Georgia and will promote the mission of the Technical College System of Georgia. The state winner will receive a $1,000 first prize.
