Special to SEGAZINE
Phil Logan, CSX Transportation terminal superintendent for the Waycross Rice Yard, and Jake Hunter, assistant terminal superintendent, visited the Okefenokee Technical College campus recently where Logan made a donation on behalf of CSX to the OTC Foundation. Deibert accepted the check on behalf of OTC Foundation Chair Larry Paulk and thanked CSX officials.
Also attending the presentation, but not pictured, were Craig Camuso, regional vice-president for Community Affairs; Peggy Smith, manager of Community Relations and Safety; Cindy Tanner, OTC Foundation Executive Director; and A. A. (Gus) Karle, community advocate, retired CSX terminal superintendent and former OTC Foundation trustee.
According to Tanner, CSX has been a generous supporter of Okefenokee Technical College for many years.
“We are most appreciative to CSX for this substantial gift, which will be used for student scholarships and program support,” said Tanner.
“We look forward to the visit from Camuso and Karle each year, not only to visit with them, but also to replenish our scholarship funds in order to promote student success and workforce development. We are also grateful for the financial and in-kind support provided by CSX for OTC rail programs. Relocating a locomotive was a huge undertaking, and we thank those involved for their many contributions.”
The check presentation was made in front of the locomotive that CSX helped relocate. For information about OTC and its programs, visit okefenokeetech.edu or call (912) 287-6584.
