South Georgia Tech’s Carter recognized for GOAL service
South Georgia Technical College President Dr. John Watford presented SGTC Career Services Director Cynthia Carter with a plaque for her 13 years of service as the South Georgia Technical College GOAL Coordinator during the college’s 2020 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership breakfast.
David Bush, a first year Air Conditioning Technology student, was selected as the college’s 2020 GOAL winner and will represent South Georgia Technical College at the regional and state competition.
“GOAL is the longest serving student recognition program at our college. Buddy Holloman served as our first GOAL Coordinator and then Martha Arrington took over as our second GOAL Coordinator. Cynthia Carter became our GOAL Coordinator after Martha Arrington and she has served in this position for the past 13 years,” said President Watford.
“Cynthia cares about people and she cares about students. Being GOAL Coordinator requires a lot of work and it is usually just one more duty added to your plate. But Cynthia has always performed those duties over and above. This plaque is our way of thanking her for the past 13 years of service to the GOAL program,” said President Watford.
The inscription on the plaque had, “Presented to Cynthia Carter in Appreciation for 13 Years of Service as South Georgia Technical College GOAL Coordinator, February 4, 2020.”
Carter is the Career Services Director at South Georgia Technical College and in a reorganization of administration duties recently, student activities, GOAL, and Rick Perkins Instructor of the Year coordination are now under the Student Activities department. Carter is now a member aligned with the SGTC Economic Development division.
