Foundation Board of Directors

A Message From the Director

Stephen Williamson, Foundation Director

Investing in students and their desire to lead, build, take care of their families, own a business and work hard is the number one mission of the Southeast Tech Foundation. By providing funds for scholarships, facilities, services and supporting our faculty, the Foundation invests in students and workforce development in our region. We invite you to support the Foundation by giving to the endowment, annual fund, scholarship support, a capital project, in-kind or adding Southeast to your estate plans. We appreciate your support and consideration and I am always available to discuss how Southeast fits into your charitable budget or answer questions. It is time for Tech!
