Atlanta Technical College will host its 18th annual Bridge Builder Awards—an annual fundraiser that benefits the ATC Foundation and supports ATC students on their educational journey—will be held at its campus on Tuesday, April 23, at 6 p.m.
Presented by the college’s Board of Trustees and ATC President Victoria Seals, the program will honor individuals who have built bridges and left an indelible impact on ATC’s communities.
“We are thrilled to be bringing our annual Bridge Builders award ceremony back home to Atlanta Technical College,” said Harold Mitchell Sr., chairman of the ATC Board of Trustees. “This event is more than a fundraiser: It is a reminder to all of our supporters of the amazing opportunities we’re able to provide because of their generosity. I truly believe this will be our best year!”
With the theme “There’s No Place Like Home,” the event will be held on ATC’s campus after previously being held at event facilities throughout Atlanta. Returning to campus will allow ATC to highlight numerous academic programs and career opportunities students can obtain through certificate, diploma, and degree programs offered at ATC.
“There truly is no place like home and this year we are excited to share our campus with everyone who graciously gives to the college,” said Dr. Seals. “This annual event raises a significant amount of money that goes directly to our students—from buying books to helping pay for tuition and transportation, our foundation is always ready to do whatever it takes to help our students succeed. We’re working hard to make this Bridge Builders ceremony the most memorable yet!”
Past Bridge Builder honorees include Civil Rights legend and Georgia Congressman John Lewis; United Way of Greater Atlanta CEO Milton Little Jr.; Ambassador Andrew Young; Mary Brock, co-owner of the Atlanta Dream; and Detlev von Platen, president and CEO, Porsche Cars of North America.
