July 12, 2010 - Several members of the Albany Technical College faculty and staff attended the grand opening of Radium Gardens at the 11:30 ceremony today. County Commission Chairman, Jeff Sinyard, recognized Horticulture instructor, George Paul, and Albany Tech as a vital partner of the project.


Justin Powell, a 2008 graduate of the Horticulture program at Albany Tech, is the supervisor for the project through the Dougherty County Public Works Department. “Albany Technical College helped me gain the knowledge and skills I needed to make my career dream a reality. With convenient classes and field experience, I got the training I needed. Now, I’m helping to improve our community using the skills I learned,” said Powell.


Paul’s horticulture students will be able to serve as interns at the Gardens. “This project will allow my students to get real experience in the field. There are several in line for internships and one who is planning to volunteer at the Gardens,” said Paul.
