Chattahoochee Technical College

Middle Georgia Technical College Nominates 14 Students for GOAL Award.

Warner Robins - Instructors at Middle Georgia Technical College have nominated 14 students for the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) competition, according to Janet Kelly, coordinator for the college's GOAL program. 

GOAL, a statewide program of the Technical College System of Georgia, honors excellence in academics and leadership among the state's technical college students. GOAL winners are selected at each of the state's 26 technical colleges, as well as two Board of Regents colleges with technical education divisions.

Chosen for recognition by their instructors are Diane Stafford, a Business Administrative Technology student from Byron; Dereck White, a Cosmetology student from Jackson; Mark Craddock, a Radiologic Technology student from Warner Robins; Vanessa Phillips, an Industrial Systems Technology student from St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Joseph Pope, an Industrial Systems student from Unadilla; Raymond Ochoa, an Industrial Systems student from Warner Robins; Rodolfo Santana, an Air Conditioning Technology student from Warne Robins; Mary Margaret Yawn, a Cosmetology student from Perry; Rhonda Mincey, a Criminal Justice Technology student from Perry; Robert Butler, Jr., an Industrial Systems student from Albany; Jessica Worsley, a Practical Nursing student from Bonaire; Kristian Manley, a Business Administrative Technology student from Warner Robins; Anna Collins, a Radiologic Technology student from Roberta; and Kristie Kunkel, a Business Administrative Technology student from Warner Robins.

"The purpose of the GOAL program is to spotlight the outstanding achievement by students in Georgia's technical colleges and to emphasize the importance of technical education in today's global workforce," said Kelly.

A screening committee of administrators at MGTC will review each of the instructors' nominations and conduct personal interviews with the students. After the nominees have been ranked, four finalists will be selected to compete to become the College's GOAL winner for 2011.

The four finalists will then take part in another round of interviews and evaluations by a selection committee of representatives from local business and industry. The selection committee will consider the students' qualities, including academic achievement, personal character, leadership abilities and enthusiasm for technical education.

The student judged most outstanding will be designated as the college's GOAL winner and move on to the regional competition. Three students chosen from each of the three regions will make up the nine semi-finalists that will interview for the title of state GOAL winner. The nine finalists will be announced in May at the state GOAL conference in Atlanta. After another round of interviews, one winner will be chosen to become the state's ambassador for Technical Education.

The state GOAL winner receives a GOAL medallion and will also receive a new Chevrolet Cruz to aid in the job of traveling the state of Georgia as the ambassador of Technical Education. Chevrolet is the statewide corporate sponsor for Georgia's GOAL program.
