Horry Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (HTC) is proud to announce a partnership with Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) to fund a summer STEM camp for area youth and scholarships for local public high school seniors.

The HTC STEM Summer Camp was created to expose young students to the world of STEM and the education and career opportunities available to them in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The donation allowed for over 200 children from the Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand, the Mary C. Canty Life-Long Impacted Teens (MCC LIT), the James R. Frazier Recreation Center in Bucksport, and the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Conway to attend the camp for free. HGTC professors lead the camp in areas of computer coding, coding with robotics, digital photography, virtual reality, YouTube, food science, and social media. HTC plans to offer the HTC STEM Summer Camp again in the summer of 2020.

The HTC Cooperative Spirit Scholarship will fund 13 $1,000 scholarships each year for the next five years for one graduating senior from each public high school in Horry and Georgetown counties.

    1. Yes, we plan to help sponsor the camp but HGTC manages the groups of participants. Please feel free to reach out to HGTC to learn more about how a child can participate. Their contact number is 843-477-2032.
