HGTC Student Receives Scholarship

SC Federal Credit Union Presents Scholarship to HGTC Student.

(Conway, SC) 5/24/2022

Austin lxHorry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud to announce that Austin Ix is one of nine students to receive a scholarship from South Carolina Federal Credit Union in the 12th annual scholarship program. The current Wando High School student received a $4,000 scholarship in the specialized-technical college category and plans to attend HGTC in the fall. He is registered for the Electrical Lineman Technician Program.

“I have always admired the lineman who put their lives on the line to repair the power lines during storms and severe weather. While visiting the HGTC Campus and seeing the lineman course and programs offered, I realized that is where I want to be. I know that a technical college environment will be the best fit for me, and I am eager to get started this fall,” said Austin Ix.

“We are very excited that Austin Ix has selected Horry-Georgetown Technical College as his college of choice for the fall 2022 semester. Our faculty and staff are proud to work with students like Austin who have made an impact in their high schools and plan to make their futures even brighter. It is our mission to make his dreams a reality through our programs of study,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President.
