ALBANY, GEORGIA - Albany Technical College President, Dr. Anthony O. Parker, will deliver the annual State of the College address on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 10 a.m. in the Kirkland Conference Center.

Dr. Parker will highlight economic distress indicators by region and county and the role that Albany Technical College will play in strengthening those indicators through education and workforce development within the college’s seven-county service delivery area.  The address will include statistics on the college’s enrollment, retention, and graduation rates during the past year.  Also in the presentation will be a look back at 2018-2019 accomplishments and a look forward to what’s ahead in 2020.  Dr. Parker’s remarks will outline new programs of study at the college and information about Dual Enrollment participation at both the high school level and in Adult Education. 

A special guest, Dr. Cayanna Good, Assistant Commissioner for Adult Education at the Technical College System of Georgia, will be on-hand to give a preview of a new statewide initiative designed to help those 18 or older who have earned some high school or GED® credits.  The pilot will be launched early next year at four Georgia technical colleges, including Albany Tech.  The initiative will be an innovative path for students to achieve high school equivalency while also earning technical certificates of credit and career-related diplomas. Students who successfully complete the program will be better prepared for the workforce or they may choose to continue their education and obtain a college degree.
