Big Sandy Community and Technical College joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year the holiday giving season kicked off on November 27, 2018. On the BSCTC campuses, the #GivingTuesday campaign collected donations for the student emergency fund. Kelli Martin, manager of advancement, said the fund is for students who experience an unforeseen financial emergency or catastrophic event that could prevent them from staying in school. Together, 88 faculty and staff, board members, and local businesses contributed $5,102 for the student emergency fund.
