COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Georgia Power made a generous donation of $30,000 to Columbus State University on Tuesday.
The money will go towards scholarships of the U-Teach and STEM programs at the Turner College of Business and College of Letters and Sciences on campus.
Faculty at CSU say this donation from Georgia Power will be very helpful to students entering and continuing in these programs.
"We have these partnerships with the community," said Debbie Gober, CSU mathematics professor. "Those are very important. We appreciate all the support they give us. We could not do it without them."
U-Teach is a teacher certification effort that hopes to fill the shortage of qualified secondary mathematics, science, and computer science teachers as well as the quality of those entering the field.
