Technical College System Honors EAGLE Recipients For Achievements In Adult Education

Atlanta– The Technical College System of Georgia’s Office of Adult Education recognized 37 men and women, including April Musgrove, for their achievements in adult education during a luncheon held Friday at Atlanta’s Hyatt Regency Hotel.

The Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) program honored the 37 as delegates to the program’s Leadership Institute conference held in Atlanta February 13-15. Eagle Award Winner

Nominated by instructors from Georgia’s local adult literacy programs, the 37 EAGLE delegates are among more than 84,000 adult learners in the state.  Delegates earned the statewide recognition based on their efforts to obtain their GED and their excellent character, positive attitude, superb classroom attendance and outstanding leadership.

Musgrove, a Ware County resident, was nominated by her instructor, Gloria Reid. “April was selected to be an EAGLE delegate,” according to Reid, “because she is hardworking, dedicated, determined, and intelligent. I have no doubt that she will succeed in her future academic endeavors.” Musgrove plans to become a professional photographer.

Georgia’s 2008 EAGLE delegates are considered ambassadors and spokespersons for adult education, according to Ron Jackson, Commissioner for the Technical College System of Georgia. Jackson adds, “These outstanding men and women are role models for others who want to obtain their GED.  I take pride in knowing that each delegate demonstrates leadership qualities wherever they are – their homes, communities, workplaces and, most assuredly, in their classrooms.”

Okefenokee Technical College is among 33 colleges in the Technical College System of Georgia. In 2007, 140,852 students attended TCSG colleges, which offer small classes, hands-on experience and focused instructor attention.
