Becky Depew

Becky Depew came to Gwinnett Tech on the recommendation of family and friends. “I heard good things about the Gwinnett Tech health care program, and because the variety of classes and programs appealed to me. Gwinnett Tech offers the ability to take classes online and in traditional classroom settings, which appealed to me.” 

“My passion for helping people is why I chose to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I truly enjoy helping people. Being able to make someone smile, at what could possibly be the worst time of their lives is why I do what I do.”

“The CNA program at Gwinnett Tech provided me not only classroom study, but clinical experience, where I was able to gain hands-on learning and experience. That opportunity allowed me get my foot in the door where I currently work.”

Becky felt the completion of the CNA program was the beginning to a lifelong career in healthcare. After she earned her CNA certificate, Becky didn’t stop learning!  “With my passion for helping people and hands-on learning at my job, I am now pursuing my Registered Nursing (RN) degree at Gwinnett Technical College.

Becky completed her CNA program in 2015 and works at Gwinnett Medical Center in the Neuroscience Unit.

Our Story

Established in 1994, the Gwinnett Tech Foundation was created to support and enhance higher education at Gwinnett Tech. Within that broad mission, our actions, achievements and priorities are many – but all ultimately benefit our students and by extension, our community.

The Foundation works to secure student scholarships and additional ways to make the goal of a college education – and a rewarding career – possible. To enrich our faculty and staff, we develop and make funding possible for a host of professional development opportunities. On campus, the Foundation is the driving force behind the capital drives that made many of Gwinnett Tech's facilities possible -- including the George Busbee International Center for Workforce Development, the D. Scott Hudgens, Jr. Early Education Center, Life Sciences Center, and the new Alpharetta-North Fulton Campus. Current Projects

Gwinnett Tech Foundation, Inc. was established in 1994, as a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization having a principal fund of its own, managed by its own trustees and directors, and established to maintain or aid Gwinnett Tech.

It was established to act as:

  • A vehicle for active fund raising.
  • A vehicle for spending funds directly associated with the instructional programs that may not be within the rules and regulations affecting public educational institutions.
  • A vehicle for responding rapidly to requests from business and industry.
  • A vehicle for smoothing out the unevenness of governmental income.
  • A vehicle for an incentive to generate additional revenues for the operation and improvement of Gwinnett Tech.
  • A vehicle for assisting students by providing scholarships, endowments, and grants.

The Gwinnett Tech Foundation intends to promote the cause of higher education at Gwinnett Tech and to provide assistance to Gwinnett Tech in all legitimate ways possible for the support and development of Gwinnett Tech in its educational, cultural, social, civic, professional endeavors and development.

Since its inception, the Foundation's main area of focus has been creating access for citizens. With the rapidly growing citizenry in Gwinnett and surrounding communities, much of the emphasis has been on capital, buildings and campus infrastructure. Other areas of work involve funding support for program operating costs, development of new programs and educational scholarships for students, as well as insuring that the faculty and staff continue to provide relevant knowledge in the classroom and supporting services.

The Gwinnett Tech Foundation is guided by a Board of Trustees made up of volunteers from the community who are leaders in various businesses and community organizations. The Board of Trustees is responsible and accountable to the organization's donors, to the organization's constituents, and to the community at large.
