Northshore Technical Community College tips off its 5th Annual Gators Give Internal Giving Campaign on March 1, 2019! This month-long campaign ensures that students and our school community have the resources needed to succeed!
NTCC is the ONLY community college in the state to receive 100% participation and raise over $10,000 consecutively for the past two years! This monumental achievement is purely due to the steadfast commitment of all of the faculty and staff of NTCC! Our institution talks the talk and walks the walk!
So, what is the game plan? This year we will be competing as divisions. If we achieve 100% giving as a college, our prize is the annual NTCC IGC Crawfish Boil! Throughout the month of March, you will have the opportunity to donate a minimum of $1 to support student scholarships, professional development, and highest college needs.
Here are your coaches and the bracket:
