By Larry K. Williams, TAG president and CEO

One of TAG’s four foundational mission pillars is to EDUCATE. As such, a large part of our focus is on supporting emerging tech professionals.

Over 20 years ago, we created the TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed) to strengthen the technology community’s future workforce and give young people the tools they need to face the challenges ahead. And today, TAG-Ed provides exposure through a wide variety of programs such as: internships, professional development opportunities, immersion experiences and connections to industry professionals. As such, TAG-Ed continues to help shape the possibilities for the talent of tomorrow.

Just last week, we hosted our 18th annual TAGit golf tournament at the prestigious TPC Sugarloaf Country Club, in support of TAG-Ed’s mission. The event was a great success, as we welcomed more than 125 golfers with the support of over 50 sponsors. Congratulations to winners of the Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Low Gross, Low Net and the coveted Champion Cup! And, a big thank you Krandall Jones, TAGit 2022 Chair and the entire TAGit Committee volunteers who helped make the tournament possible.

While the golf tournament was a day full of fun, it was also much more than that. Our dynamic technology community had the opportunity to network with one another and, more importantly, build friendships, all in support of a truly worthy cause. I am incredibly proud to announce that the golf tournament raised more than $10,000, which will go directly toward TAG-Ed’s goal of providing vital pathways to STEAM careers for students across Georgia.
