(l-r) John Gyllin, vice president of resource and economic development at Seminole State, accepts a $25,000 donation from AT&T with Dan Pollock, AT&T Florida regional director; Dr. E. Ann McGee, Seminole State president; and Troy McNichols, director of AT&T Corporate External and Legislative Affairs for Central and North Florida

AT&T is investing in students at Seminole State College of Florida to prepare them for success in the future.

On June 22, AT&T made a $25,000 donation to the Foundation for Seminole State College of Florida Inc. The donation will be used to support first-generation, at-risk students; Adult Education tutoring and the College’s One More Class initiative, which encourages students to complete their degrees and certificates at Seminole State.

"This gift will enable students that have the hardest path to an education, the opportunity to succeed. AT&T has been at the heart of this support, and we cannot thank them enough for this generous contribution," said John Gyllin, vice president of resource and economic development at Seminole State. "We at Seminole State follow the mantra of changing lives. AT&T will do just that – change lives." 

The donation was made possible by AT&T's philanthropic initiative, AT&T Aspire, which drives innovation in education – through technology, social innovation and relationships — to ensure all students have the skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.

"AT&T tradition is building strong communities by helping people achieve their dreams and reach their potential to succeed," said Dan Pollock, AT&T Florida Regional Director. "This investment supports programs that remove roadblocks that stop students from reaching their dreams of completing their degrees and certificates."

Seminole State, a member of the public Florida College System, is a comprehensive college, offering more than 200 programs, including six bachelor’s degrees; an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree with state common prerequisites for 92 upper-division majors; 28 Associate in Science/Associate in Applied Science (A.S./A.A.S.) degrees; and 84 certificate programs. In addition, Seminole State offers workforce education and adult education.
