Donor Recognition and Impact

Tennessee Tech University donors change lives.

From a scholarship that helps a student in financial need, to the opportunity to meet an inspirational entrepreneur and television star, to professional development opportunities that prepare a graduate to succeed in the workforce, donor support makes it possible.

Here are just a few of the many students whose college experience has been shaped by generous Tennessee Tech donors.

Shelby Christian '18

"Donor-funded scholarships have helped my family and me tremendously.  My parents work hard for every penny they earn, and I also have two sisters that they have to worry about.  I want to ease the stress off of my parents as much as possible.  The donor-funded scholarships I receive do just that, and more." --Shelby Christian, Human Ecology
