STC McMillan Scholarship Awarded

Southeastern Technical College (STC) awarded Jason Cauley, Automotive Technology student, the first-time recipient of the Bobby Lee McMillan, Sr., Scholarship. “We are very thankful to the family of Bobby Lee McMillan, Sr., for honoring his memory through the creation of this scholarship. Mr. McMillan’s family felt that creating this scholarship was the most fitting way to pass along his love of Southeastern Tech and of automotive technology to future generations,” said Blythe Wilcox, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. Mr. McMillan was a former automotive instructor at Swainsboro Technical College. This $500 scholarship will assist one of STC’s Automotive Technology or Diesel Equipment Technology students each year by covering a portion of tuition, fees, and/or books and will be awarded in two installments of $250 for the fall and spring semesters. The student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher and may be enrolled as full or part-time. Jason said, “I’ve always been interested in cars. There are many car enthusiasts in my family. I felt like since I have such a strong interest in how vehicles are built and how they run, I should get educated with these skills. I am honored to receive this scholarship and can’t thank the McMillan family enough.”

Jason is in his third semester in the Automotive program and lives in Soperton. His instructor, Will Fountain, recommended him for the scholarship.
