SGTC Aviation Advisory Committee Meets
The South Georgia Technical College aviation advisory committee met recently in the Griffin Bell Aerospace building on SGTC’s Americus campus to discuss the state of the trade.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Tech faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Aviation Maintenance Technology, Avionics Technology, and Aircraft Structural Technology programs. SGTC Aviation instructors Victoria Herron, Charles Christmas, Jason Wisham and David Grant provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news.
The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new training opportunities that are available in the field of aviation, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Members present at the advisory meeting were Mike Collins, SGTC electronics technology instructor; Reed Wiglesworth, BonnieBlue Aviation; Paul Pearson, Souther Field Aviation; and Mark Fayerman, FAA Atlanta FSDO. SGTC academic dean Raymond Holt and SGTC Academic Affairs Administrative Assistant April Hilliardwere also present at the advisory committee meeting.
The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Tech instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
