Ribbon Cutting held at South Georgia Technical College new Taylor County Adult Education site
BUTLER, Ga. – South Georgia Technical College and the Taylor County Chamber of Commerce hosted a grand opening/ribbon cutting ceremony recently at South Georgia Tech’s new Taylor County Adult Education site at 35 Oak Street in Butler, GA.
South Georgia Technical College President Dr. John Watford joined Amanda Haynie, Executive Director of the Taylor County Chamber of Commerce as well as Jerry Weldon, Chairman of the Taylor County Board of Commissioners in welcoming the public to the grand opening and ribbon cutting.
Haynie thanked Dr. Watford and South Georgia Technical College for opening the new adult education center in Taylor County and for the other services that the college would be providing for the individuals of Taylor County through the main campus in Americus and the satellite campus in Crisp County.
The Technical College System of Georgia added Taylor County to the South Georgia Technical College service delivery last year. South Georgia Tech currently offers over 200 associate degree, diploma, and technical certificate of credit programs as well as adult education services to the citizens of Sumter, Crisp, Schley, Macon, Marion, and Webster Counties. Now those same services are also being offered to the residents of Taylor County.
“On behalf of South Georgia Technical College, I would like to thank the individuals here in Taylor County for the outstanding support and welcome that we have received,” said South Georgia Technical College President Dr. John Watford. “We believe that this is a great site for our adult education center and we look forward to providing the individuals in Taylor County with GED and adult education classes here. We would also encourage everyone to learn more about credit academic classes and continuing education classes that are provided at our main campus.”
Jerry Weldon, a graduate of South Georgia Technical College, took the opportunity to thank Dr. Watford and the South Georgia Technical College faculty and staff for responding so quickly to the needs of Taylor County citizens. “We look forward to working with you and your staff to meet the educational needs of the citizens of Taylor County,” said Weldon.
