Americus Rotary Club presents South Georgia Tech’s 2020 outstanding student with stipend
Americus Rotary Club Past President Don Smith presented South Georgia Technical College Air Conditioning Technology student David Bush of Cuthbert with a stipend recently on behalf of the Americus Rotary Club after he was recognized as the college’s 2020 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) winner by SGTC President Dr. John Watford at the college’s GOAL breakfast recently.
The Americus Rotary Club and the Americus – Sumter County Chamber of Commerce have been premier sponsors of the South Georgia Technical College Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) program for many years. “We are appreciative of both organizations for their sponsorship of this event and for their support of our students,” said South Georgia Technical College President Dr. John Watford. “This Americus Rotary Club stipend is a wonderful way to honor our top students, but it also means a great deal to the college and this community.”
Bush was selected for this honor by a panel of local community leaders. An internal committee interviewed all of the college nominees and narrowed the selection to four GOAL finalists. Bush was selected to represent the Air Conditioning Technology department and he was competing against finalists Sierra Berry of the Practical Nursing Department; Garrett Kennedy of the Motorsports Technology program; and Matthew Ross of the Air Conditioning Technology program.
Americus Air Conditioning Technology Instructor Glynn Cobb nominated Bush for this honor. David Bush will now represent South Georgia Technical College at regional and state competitions in an effort to be selected as the top student within the Technical College System of Georgia.
