ATC Makes Top Four for Governor’s Technical College of the Year

By   /   December 9, 2010  /   Comments

Albany Technical College was one of four technical colleges out of 26 technical colleges in the Technical
College System of Georgia (TCSG) to be nominated for Governor Sonny Perdue’s Technical College of the
Year Award.

Judging for the award is based on almost two dozen performance criteria, including enrollment numbers,
graduation rate, student retention, job placement rate, cost efficiency, completions in adult education programs,
and trends in specialized workforce training.

“Our attention to placement, enrollment, and stewardship has taken us to the top four,” said Dr. Anthony Parker,
President of Albany Tech. “Early indications for fiscal year 2011 predict that we will perform well again in
those areas. The work of our enrollment management committee, strategic planning, and program audits have
served us well.

“Our technical colleges in Georgia are critical components of our overall economic development strategy,” said
Governor Sonny Perdue. “Georgia’s technical colleges are emerging from this downturn stronger and ready to
meet the advanced, high-tech workforce demands of today’s global economy.”

Wiregrass Technical College was the finalist for the award. However, Albany Tech did receive a governor’s
proclamation for its nomination.

“I am very proud to be a part of the ATC team and am extremely proud of our accomplishments,” said Dr.
Parker. “I look forward to again being evaluated as a part of the best faculty and administrative team in TCSG.
