CARTERSVILLE, Ga. -- Chattahoochee Technical College has named Melanie Lambert as head of its Chattahoochee Tech Foundation.
Lambert, a Cartersville resident, is responsible for operating the foundation, which provides scholarships and grants for students, and financial support for programs.
She comes to CTC from Emory University, where she served as senior associate director of stewardship and donor relations. She has also worked in the development office at Reinhardt University, where she earned her communications degree.
For her first order of business, Lambert plans to educate CTC students about the opportunities the foundation offers them.
"When students find out that their scholarships are funds provided by people and businesses in our community, they want to show their gratitude," she said. "I want the foundation to provide them with every opportunity to connect with donors."
