Woody Sanders, president of D.W. Sanders Tile & Stone Contracting. Sanders has pledged to donate $1,000 per month going forward to help the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation navigate through COVID-19.

The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation operates solely on industry sponsorship, donations, and registration fees associated with tile installation certification events for the Certified Tile Installer and Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers programs. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has halted all in-person certification testing activities for the foreseeable future.

Sanders, president of D.W. Sanders Tile & Stone Contracting, headquartered in Marietta, GA, is Certified Tile Installer #1295, the Proud Employer of CTIs, and a CTI program Evaluator. Sanders is passionately committed to nurturing and educating the tile industry work force and has said, “Had it not been for the invaluable education and certification of the CTI program, I would not be where I am today. Now it is my turn to support the CTEF.”

If you are interested in making a one-time or recurring tax-deductible donation to CTEF, contact Cathey McAlister at 864-222-2131 or go to https://www.ceramictilefoundation.org/donate-now.
