Sharing a community and a purpose.
Like the iconic water tower that marks their campus, Athens Technical College sets out to lift their students to new heights. For well over a half a century, high school graduates looking for the most direct pathway to a rewarding career, as well as working adults who simply want to take their career to the next level, have trusted Athens Technical College with their future. And, with every degree, diploma, and certificate awarded, they deliver.
This ongoing infusion of talent into the workforce provides important support for the economic development of Athens-Clarke County and the surrounding region.
So, it stands to reason that Athens Technical College chose Synovus as their bank way back in 1991. After all, they both share a passion and responsibility for elevating others and their community. This fact was not lost on Kathryn Thomas when she first joined the administrative staff at Athens Technical College in 1995. (She’s also been a Synovus customer herself ever since.) Today, as the college’s Vice President for Finance and Administration, Kathryn works closely with the team at Synovus.
“We like working with a local bank who knows and understands our business as well as the community we both serve.”
Whether it’s managing multiple business checking accounts, adding a feature to their digital banking service, or simply accessing one of their safe deposit boxes, Kathryn cites the knowledgeable and responsive support she receives as a main reason for the long-term relationship Athens Technical College shares with Synovus.
Recently, Synovus provided assistance in setting up the back-end processes of a system that now provides financial aid payments to students quicker and easier. Kathryn and her team at Athens Technical College agree the decision to trust Synovus as their banking partner was a smart choice.
