Talladega, Alabama—Although charitable contributions to colleges and universities have dropped nationally, with gift giving down on an average of nearly 12%, AT&T Birmingham kept their commitment to contribute to Talladega College. Last week, Dr. Billy C. Hawkins, TC President, and Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Casandra Blassingame were presented with a check in the amount of $5,000 (five thousand dollars) from the global communications giant.
The Regional Director with Alabama External Affairs of AT&T Alabama, Mr. Glyn Agnew, presented the check last week to the College. Mr. Agnew was happy to give this support as he remarked, “Talladega College is a thriving vibrant institution in the state. AT&T is a supporter of the UNCF and UNCF schools in Alabama. This is a critical moment in our nation where technology is changing and upgrading constantly. Education is the gateway to prosperity, a better life and a better community as a whole. AT&T is in support of a well-educated workforce. Our support is vital to personal development, and we are committed to invest in our youth; and, in turn, this will benefit our company.”
