Programs Host Speaker
Ogeechee Technical College




Students in the Neuromuscular Massage Therapy and Business Management programs at Ogeechee Technical College recently welcomed Renasant Bank Commercial Relationship Officer, Thomas Monk. Monk explained commercial lending, as well as other types of loans, loan rates and terms, elements of loan approval, business plan components, and how the Small Business Administration can assist with business start-ups. “Massage therapy is a healthcare profession in which self-employment is an option,” said Anita Brown, NMT Instructor. Brown continued, “While start-up costs can be fairly low, a student with an entrepreneurial spirit needs to know how to work with lenders to help finance their dreams.” Business Management instructor, Alex Harris, said, “It is imperative that our students understand what a bank evaluates before deciding to lend money. Mr. Monk’s presentation will hopefully give our students something to think about before they make financial decisions now that could negatively affect them later in life, when their goals become clearer.”
