AIKEN – The Savannah River Site liquid waste contractor Savannah River Remediation recently donated $10,000 to Denmark Technical College, one of the state’s historically black colleges and universities, for new equipment that will help students in electrical-related programs.
DTC provides a two-year program that allows for a mix of traditional and non-traditional students to help them achieve their educational and career goals. SRR’s donation will go toward equipment for electrical and instrumentation training for students and other training materials.
The donation is part of a memorandum of understanding SRR signed with DTC this month. The MOU details the methods in which SRR will help students prepare for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)-focused areas. The MOU strengthens the relationship between SRR and DTC and helps prepare the future workforce for future careers.
