SGTC Crisp County Center Medical Assisting Instructor Vickie Gilbert retires
South Georgia Technical College Crisp County Center Medical Assisting Instructor Vickie Gilbert was recognized recently for her retirement with over 11 years of service to the Medical Assisting students from the Crisp County area.
Dr. John Watford, President of SGTC, recognized Gilbert during a faculty-staff meeting on the Crisp County Center campus with faculty and staff present. He presented Gilbert with a plaque with the SGTC logo that stated, “In appreciation for your 11 years of faithful service to South Georgia Technical College.”
“There is no greater asset at South Georgia Technical College than our people,” said Dr. Watford, as he recognized Vickie Gilbert and other members of the SGTC Crisp County Center faculty and staff for their service to South Georgia Tech. “We want to wish Vickie all the best and thank her for what she has meant to each of us here at South Georgia Technical College. We also appreciate her for her service to our students. Many of the medical assistants working in Crisp County and the surrounding area are working today because of the educational knowledge that Mrs. Gilbert shared with them while they were students.”
“I would like to thank everyone here at South Georgia Technical College,” said Gilbert. “I have been thinking about this day for a while but now that this time has come, I have so many emotions. I know I am going to miss each of you and I will miss working with my students. They become near and dear to you and we celebrate when they graduate and when they go to work. I am going to miss all of this.”
Gilbert graduated from Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus with a B.S. in Nursing. She worked as the Employee Health/Infection Control Manager at Crisp Regional Hospital prior to joining South Georgia Technical College in 2008. She had also worked with Healthmaster Home Healthcare as a RN Supervisor, and at Crisp Regional Hospital and Dooly Medical Center in Vienna.
