Mrs. Linda Cherry, St. Michael Catholic School Principal, said, “The HTC Recycling program is a model for other local companies to help both the environment and local schools. We are thrilled to win first place this year. This program brings our school, church parish and the Garden City/Murrells Inlet community together to help the environment and our school. We thank HTC for the $2,500 technology award; we will be researching how best to use the award for our students.”
Natalie Waters, Home & School Association Treasurer for Holy Trinity Catholic School, said, “Many thanks to HTC for sponsoring the phone book recycling program again this year. Our students are very proud of winning and enjoy learning the importance of recycling. We have implemented a school-wide recycling program including the cafeteria, front office, and classrooms. Holy Trinity Catholic School will be upgrading the students' classroom computers for K-5th grade this summer. We are grateful for the commitment HTC has to local education in Horry County."
“HTC is strongly connected to the community we serve. Through the HTC recycling program, we are rewarding area schools while educating everyone on the benefits of recycling and environmental awareness,” said Tom Vitt, Director of Marketing for HTC. “We are grateful for the participation from the students, teachers and community members that play a vital part in the success of this program.”
Over the last 14 years, HTC has contributed more than $127,000 needed by participating and winning schools to purchase new technology in the classroom and over 850,000 directories have been recycle instead of going into the landfill. Special thanks to the recycling partners that make this program possible including the Horry County Solid Waste Authority, Wendy’s, Burroughs & Chapin, and Auntie Anne’s.
