Patrick Jenkins, an environmental horticulture student, was named the Albany Technical College Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) winner in a Rotary Club ceremony last week at Doublegate Country Club.
Jenkins was picked by an Albany Area Chamber of Commerce panel in a judging held at the campus. He, along with one winner from each technical college in the state, will have an opportunity to go on to Atlanta to compete at the State GOAL competition on May 25-26. The state winner will be the official spokesperson for technical education in Georgia for 2011.
“I am honored to be chosen and plan to bring home the state award to Albany Tech,” said Jenkins.
The three other Albany Tech finalists were Brandon Bass (radiologic technology); Chancy Davis (marketing management); and Rodriquez Thomas (early childhood care and education).
The GOAL program recognizes exceptional technical college students from across the state for their academic excellence and personal achievement. The program also spotlights the important role of technical training in our economy.
