Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership

< Student Clubs & Organizations

The GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership) program of the technical colleges began at South Georgia Tech in 1972. GOAL is co-sponsored statewide by the Business Council of Georgia and the State Board of Technical and Adult Education. The GOAL program seeks to give recognition annually to the State's outstanding post-secondary technical education.

The main objectives of the GOAL program are:

1. To spotlight the importance of technical education in modern society;
2. To reward students who excel in learning a skill;
3. To encourage pride in workmanship;
4. To generate greater respect and appreciation for the working person; and
5. To emphasize the dignity of work in today's society.
All full-time diploma program students are eligible to compete in the GOAL program. Instructors select and nominate their outstanding students. From these nominations, a committee chooses four outstanding students from the college. Finally, the college winner, chosen from the four finalists, is selected to compete in the annual statewide GOAL competition in Atlanta.

For more information, please contact Cynthia Y. Carter, GOAL Coordinator at 229-931–2057.
