Nov. 15, 2022

Multiple $1 million gifts have been given to Augusta Technical College in Georgia for its new automotive training training facility. 

Nov. 15, 2022—Augusta Technical College in Georgia has received multiple $1 million donations to be put toward its new automotive service training center, according to WRDW.

The Knox Foundation has made the most recent donation. This is not the first sizable gift the college has received. Recently, two other $1 million donations were given to the school from Augusta National Golf Club and the Jim Hudson Automotive Group, respectively. 

All of this money will be put toward a training facility that will quadruple what Augusta Tech currently has available to its students. It will be located in the Laney Walker Neighborhood of Augusta, Georgia. Once it officially opens, the facility will offer 16 certification programs to about 1,270 students annually. It is expected to be the leading automotive training center in the region. 

Augusta Tech hopes this facility will help meet the demand for more automotive technicians.
