South Central Communications recently awarded over $30,000 to more than 32 schools across our coverage area. This generous donation was a result of partnering with local communities in our first annual Go Gig for Schools promotion.
As the 2018 school year began, we offered new 1 Gig customers the opportunity to designate a $100 to a local K-12 school of their choice. Many charitable customers chose to “pay it forward,” resulting in a $30,500 total donation to our local schools.
According to principals receiving these funds, they will be able to provide a variety of benefits to deserving students – from purchasing new technology, to creating better learning environments, to new academic incentives. While we’re committed to providing superior service and support to all of our communities, being able to partner with local customers to benefit our children in this way is icing on the cake.`
SCC began offering Gigabit Internet in 2015 and have now introduced this robust service to a dozen different communities. Gigabit Internet not only delivers a home-internet experience capable of many video streams simultaneously, but this new technology also provides opportunities in new job sectors, advanced educational tools, and tele-health capabilities.
Given the overwhelming success of the Go Gig for Schools promotion and the harmony with SCC’s mission of improving their communities, we’re excited to offer this promotion again. Watch for more information as kids head back to school this Fall.
