Zackary Mincey Chosen as SGTC EAGLE Representative
Zackary Mincey of Buena Vista has been chosen to represent South Georgia Technical College as this year’s nominee for the Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) award presented annually by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). He will represent SGTC’s adult education program at the annual EAGLE conference in March.
Mincey graduated from SGTC’s adult education program in June and is currently enrolled in the college’s welding program. He anticipates graduating in December, 2023.
“He displays exemplary leadership qualities,” SGTC adult education instructor Angie Kauffman said of Mincey. “He is an excellent example of how a person can strive to achieve dreams because of his hard work and determination.”
The EAGLE award was established to recognize and reward excellence among students who are studying for or have completed their high school equivalency. Every EAGLE delegate is considered an ambassador and spokesperson for literacy serving local communities and the state by promoting lifelong learning. In addition to serving as volunteer role models for family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers, EAGLE delegates serve as mentors, peer tutors, and recruiters of other students into local adult education programs.
South Georgia Technical College offers adult education/high school equivalency classes in seven counties: Sumter, Marion, Crisp, Schley, Webster, Macon, and Taylor. Morning, afternoon, evening, and online classes are available. For more information, contact the SGTC adult education office at (229) 931-2565.
