Lt. Governor Casey Cagle Visits THINC College and Career Academy for Verizon Donation Presentation

January 12, 2018

Last week the students and staff at THINC College and Career Academy (THINC) hosted Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle. This is Cagle’s third visit to THINC which is located inside West Georgia Technical College’s Troup County campus.

THINC students presented to a crowd of 125 people gathered in the engineering wing of the academy. Attendees to the event were greeted by students and seated in the open-spaced classroom surrounded by industry grade manufacturing equipment. Cagle was the guest of honor for the hour-long program that highlighted Verizon’s second donation to the academy. The student Ambassador-led agenda featured student success stories, programs offered at the academy, and a special presentation from Julie Smith, Government and External Affairs Executive for Verizon.

Shay Griffin, a senior at LaGrange High and third-year student at THINC, took to the podium saying, “My time at THINC has taught me about the skills I need to be successful in school and work. I am treated like an adult and am provided opportunities to participate in activities that give me real-world experience.” Other participating students echoed her sentiments.

Joe Sumner, THINC’s Mechatronics Instructor said, “Many people ask us why they should  support THINC with financial contributions, and I believe the students who have provided their testimonies today answered that question – we support THINC because of them and their future.” Shortly after Sumner’s words, Smith from Verizon said, “Verizon believes in supporting our future through education. We have visited many college and career academies in Georgia. THINC, right here in Troup County, has outstanding programs that are teaching our future employees the skills necessary to succeed in the business world.”

Smith continued, “Last time we donated $10,000, but this year we are upping our donation to $25,000 in an effort to help support THINC and the students of Troup County.”

After a round of applause, Lt. Governor Cagle walked to the podium and said, “Today is an opportunity to celebrate the great things going on here (at THINC), but more importantly, to celebrate the future. The students here are doing amazing things to prepare and THINC is helping to prepare them for the workplace. People ask why invest in education, well, today shows us why you invest in a place like THINC…you invest in a place like this because you are investing in the future.”
