OTC Board of Directors Recognized for 100% Board Certification

The Okefenokee Technical College Board of Directors was recognized by the Technical College Directors’ Association (TCDA) at the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) 2011 Leadership Conference in Savannah last month for achieving 100% Board Certification.

Each director of the Board must be certified individually. The newest member of the Board, Dr. Keith Johnson, was recognized as meeting the criteria for certification at the conference, enabling the entire Board to be recognized. Johnson became an OTC board director July 1, 2011.

The TCDA’s purpose is to build the capability of the local boards of directors to effectively increase the real and perceived value of technical and adult education in Georgia. The organization was formed in 1990 as an educational non-profit organization and supports the technical colleges in having board members who are “work-ready.”

Mr. John Pharr, OTC Board Chair, and Dr. Keith Johnson represented the OTC Board at the leadership conference. “We appreciate their support and extra efforts to make OTC shine,” stated OTC President Dr. Gail Thaxton. “Congratulations to the entire OTC Board of Directors for this accomplishment.”
