Wesson - The Georgia-Pacific Foundation recently donated $5,000 to the Copiah-Lincoln Community College Co-Lin Seawolf Underwater Robotics Engineering (S.U.R.E) Team.


S.U.R.E. is made up of students from the Career-Technical and Academic Divisions of the college that have collaborated to build a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to compete in the International MATE ROV Competition. The purpose of the team is to give students in different majors the opportunity to receive hands on experience of what it will be like in the workforce and, also, in marine technology. The SeaWolves Robotics finished fourth in the 2015 MATE International Robotics Competition held in Newfoundland, Canada. The 2016 competition is located in Houston, Texas. 

Seawolf Underwater Robotics Engineering is a student organization that relies on fundraising to purchase building materials and to offset travel expenses. In addition to the generous donation from Georgia-Pacific, many organizations in the CLCC district have made contributions to the team over the past 4 years.

S.U.R.E. would, also, like to express gratitude to an anonymous donor for contributing $5000. Thank you for your support! 

If you own or work for a business that sees the value in what students involved in this program achieve, please contact Kevin McKone (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to learn how you can contribute!
