NGTC Foundation announces new $250 Savage Innovator Award
North Georgia Technical College Foundation
The North Georgia Technical College Foundation has recently received a donation to start the Savage Innovator Award. NGTC alumni Dustin Keeling and Benjamin Keith have given the funds to promote and recognize high character students who “have an innovative spirit and think outside the box.”

Beginning this fall, the $250 annual scholarship will be available to a student who fits the following criteria: first-year student with GPA of 2.5 or higher in good academic standing; provides a 350-word to 500-word essay answering the question “How do you innovate?” in the classroom, workplace or home; and is recommended by an instructor or employer.

Keith and Keeling of Savage Innovations are both 2005 graduates of NGTC. Keeling holds a degree in industrial systems technology and Keith in marine engine technology.
