At the last meeting of the Okefenokee Technical College Board of Directors, OTC President Gail Thaxton and Board Chair Ola Smith welcomed Pete Pyrzenski, Waycross City Manager, as an official OTC Board Director. Pyrzenski agreed to join the board in August. He began his term in September.

In addition to his responsibilities as administrative officer of the city of Waycross and an OTC board member, Pyrzenski  serves as a board member on the YMCA Board of Directors and the Ware County Transportation Board. He also serves on the Waycross College Planning Council.Pete Pyrzenski

Pyrzenski will join other board members in communicating community needs to the college president and administration. Directors interpret state board policies and provide supplemental policies to ensure that the needs of area business and industry are met to the highest possible degree and in the most cost effective and efficient manner. Consequently, OTC considers its local board members a vital asset in the quest to fulfill the mission of the college.

The OTC local board is composed of eight members representing the college’s designated six-county service area. At least one member from each county is represented on the board. Pyrzenski will serve with Board Chair Ola Smith, Ware; Phillip Cook, Clinch; Bonnie Davis, Charlton; Jack Johnson, Bacon; Troy Mattox, Pierce; John Pharr, Ware; and Gary Strickland, Brantley. The local board meets monthly.
