DRIVER'S EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE
The Georgia Driver’s Education Commission (GHEC) has awarded Atlanta Technical College (ATC) $14,190 to launch a driver’s education program at the college.
The grant, which runs from July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, will help finance driver’s education locally. Funds will be used to provide students with thirty (30) hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind the wheel experience with a trained instructor.
“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers, and we are committed to providing students with the education and experience needed to avoid tragedy,” said GDEC chairman Harris Blackwood. “This grant will help Atlanta Technical College equip young drivers in the community to be safer when they get behind the wheel” continued Blackwood.
Driver’s education courses are now offered through the ATC Continuing Education Department. A limited number of scholarships are available to help cover the cost for high school students. To obtain information about the driver’s education program, contact email@example.com or 404-225-4487.
