The Trustees of the Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Foundation recognized William H. Gross as the recipient of the 2019 Distinguished Service Award at the recent Technical College Foundation Association of Georgia yearly Leadership meeting held recently in Savannah.
Mr. Gross has a passion for developing his community as seen evident by his very kind donation to Coastal Pines Technical College. For many years Mr. Gross has been an advocate for technical education. Realizing the need for a more educated workforce in Camden County, Mr. Gross was one of the first community leaders to promote a partnership between Coastal Pines Technical College and Camden County High School in an effort to build one of the largest dual enrollment programs in South Georgia. In 2017, the Gross family donated 20 acres off Exit #3 near Interstate I-95 for the construction of a Coastal Pines Technical College campus to enable dual enrollment students to continue their technical education after high school graduation.
