Dr. Gail Thaxton to be Honored at March 26 Reception

Dr. Gail Thaxton, president of Okefenokee Technical College, will be honored at a farewell reception Monday, March 26, 2012, from 4 – 6 p.m. in Room 210 on the Waycross campus. A brief program will begin at 5 p.m.
Thaxton was named the third president of Okefenokee Technical College July 1, 2005, succeeding Dr. John Pike (1998 – 2005) and Joseph Ray Miller (1973 – 1998).

She announced her new appointment as president of North Georgia Technical College to faculty and staff March 1.  “Leaving Okefenokee Tech is not easy,” Thaxton said. “The move is bittersweet, but if you’ve been around me at all, you know how much family means to me. To be able to continue in this wonderful job and be close to children and grandchildren is really a blessing beyond measure.”
Dr. Thaxton’s last day at Okefenokee Tech will be March 30.
The public is invited to the reception, sponsored by the Okefenokee Technical College Foundation.
