Southern Crescent Technical College President Dr. Alvetta Thomas is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Keith Gettinger and Stone Workman as members of the college’s board of directors. Both Gettinger and Workman were sworn in by Spalding County Probate Judge Jan Hunt at the July meeting.
“I am pleased to welcome these two outstanding individuals to our Southern Crescent Technical College board of directors,” Dr. Thomas stated. “With a strong understanding of the workforce and community needs of this region, I’m certain their experience and knowledge will be invaluable as we move forward in executing our vision for the college,” Dr. Thomas concluded.
The Southern Crescent Technical College Board of Directors serves both in a community advisory capacity and in a limited administrative capacity, performing certain oversight responsibilities as designated by State Board policy. The local Board is comprised of 14 members from the business and industrial communities from eight counties in the service area comprised of Butts, Fayette, Henry, Jasper, Lamar, Pike, Spalding, and Upson counties. State Board Policy defines the role and responsibilities of the local Board. Board members are selected because of their experience, ability, and dedication to deal with issues that relate to the mission of occupational education and are without contractual, employment, or personal financial investment in the school.
Workman stated, “After partnering with the Technical College System of Georgia in various capacities over the years, it is an honor to now serve on the board of Southern Crescent Technical College and represent the citizens of Jasper County. With over 98% of our graduating students get the good jobs needed for their success, Southern Crescent Technical College is preparing students for the future workforce of our area.”
Gettinger currently serves as the Facility Manager for Caterpillar in Griffin and will represent Spalding County on the board. Representing Jasper County on the board, Workman has over 20 years of experience in economic and community development at the federal, state, and local levels.
