GNTC Announces Winner of 2019 EAGLE Award

Student wearing floral pattern top with black jackets stands in front of gray wall for portrait.

 

Harley Chastain, of Gordon County, was chosen to represent Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) at the statewide EAGLE Leadership Institute March 11-13, 2019, at the Atlanta Waverly Hotel.

 

The Leadership Institute recognizes and honors those students who have demonstrated superior achievement in adult education classes and programs.

 

A resident of Calhoun, Chastain is currently enrolled in the Lactation Consultant program at GNTC’s Gordon County Campus. Her career goal is to eventually become a midwife.

 

“GNTC’s adult education classes have prepared me for college by giving me the right tool belt of knowledge,” said Chastain. “Within the first week of college I was using a few of the writing skills taught to me in the adult education classes.”

 

Chastain was nominated for the EAGLE award by Melissa Blevins, lead teacher and site manager for Adult Education in Gordon County. Blevins said that she chose to nominate Chastain based on how much she would work with other students.

 

“Harley is dedicated, honest and she really believes in the program,” said Blevins. “She wants other people to earn their GED® diploma and achieve their goal.”

 

Jeffery Allen, of Rome, was selected as first runner up and alternate for GNTC’s EAGLE award. He was nominated by Karen Craven, lead teacher and site manager for Adult Education in Floyd County.

 

“I learn more each day with GNTC’s Adult Education program,” said Allen. “I call it a never ending journey.”

 

EAGLE (Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education) is the first statewide program in the nation that recognizes and rewards excellence among students enrolled in adult education programs. This student recognition program is designed to create greater awareness of educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster greater involvement in lifelong learning pursuits.

 

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) through its Office of Adult Education sponsors the annual Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) Leadership Institute.

Thankful For The Bobcat Nation, A Culinary Teaser This Thanksgiving Eve

Screenshot (28)Happy Thanksgiving Eve, Bobcat Nation!
Today, we are thankful for a product of our Culinary Arts program at Georgia Northwestern, Sedric Floyd.
During this holiday break, his mother asked for a hamburger. If you know Sedric, you know he doesn’t usually do simple dishes.
If monitors had smell-o-vision, you’d be enjoying the aroma of a fresh and specially seasoned homemade Turkey Burger with hand-cut baked fries!

From Sedric, Culinary Arts, and all of Georgia Northwestern,
HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Dalton Flooring Industry Honoring Deal, Helping Fund Future Workforce

Nathan Deal Scholarships For Georgia Northwestern Students

 

Governor Deal stands with Joe Yarbrough in dark colored suits on a carpeted stage with a table and dark backdrop behind them. They are holding a framed document.
“Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, left, holds a proclamation presented to him by Technical College System of Georgia Board Member Joe Yarbrough of Rocky Face, Georgia. The proclamation honoring Deal’s service to Georgia also highlights a new scholarship being created in his honor. The Nathan Deal Scholarship program will benefit students who attend Georgia Northwestern Technical College.”

 

 

(Northwest Georgia) – It wasn’t only Georgia Governor Nathan Deal that would receive honors this month at the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce Banquet. In paying tribute to the Governor and his work towards preparing a more educated workforce, industry leaders decided to make the honor also extend to the future students of Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC), as well.

In a resolution drafted in honor of Governor Deal, the first recognition of the “Nathan Deal Scholarships” for future Georgia Northwestern students was made. The program will offer selected applicants $2,500 scholarships in the initial years with plans to increase the award to $5,000 per winner.

 

The President and CEO of the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Board Member Joe Yarbrough presented the resolution to Governor Deal at the banquet. Yarbrough, a Rome, Georgia native, said this was about recognizing the Governor for his dedication to technical education in Georgia.

 

“With the Governor’s term about to expire, we wanted to make sure we honored him for his commitment and service to training Georgia’s workforce,” said Yarbrough. “Leaders of the Carpet and Rug Institute made the decision to honor his legacy by creating this endowment from which scholarships will be awarded every year to students who will be attending Georgia Northwestern Technical College.”

 

In cooperation with the Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia, CRI hopes to select and award scholarships to students who qualify. “The (Community) Foundation would screen applicants and CRI would select from the finalists,” added Yarbrough. “Of course, applicants would also have to meet GNTC’s requirements. We are hoping to make a significant impact on as many students as possible.”

 

The requirements to qualify for the Nathan Deal Scholarships are still being drawn up. “The scholarships will likely go towards those who will be employed in the flooring industry,” said Georgia Northwestern Technical College President Pete McDonald. “Of course, that industry offers many career opportunities. They have everything from business to industrial technology opportunities in Northwest Georgia. And, of course, the scholarships will be set up to benefit students in the GNTC service area.”

 

Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia President David Aft says Deal has made Technical Education a priority in Georgia. “He (Deal) is very aware of the pipeline from the classroom to the workforce,” said Aft. “He is turning that into a very powerful process. One that has such an impact on the people and businesses of the region. So, this scholarship created by the Carpet and Rug Institute, and named in his honor, is more than fitting.”

 

The CRI Board of Director members behind the creation of the Nathan Deal Scholarship program are Chairman of the Board Jim McCallum (Milliken Floor Covering Division), Vice Chairman of the Board Jack Ganley (Mannington Commercial Carpets), Treasurer David Repp (Mohawk Group), Marc Ammen (Universal Fibers), Vance Bell (Shaw Industries, Inc.), Mark Clayton (Phenix Mills), Len Ferro (Tandus Centiva), Daniel Frierson (The Dixie Group), Ralph Grogan (Bentley Mills, Inc.), Chip Howalt, (Textile Rubber and Chemical Company), Jeffrey Lorerbaum  (Mohawk Industries, Inc.) Franco Rossi (Aquafil USA), and Robert Shaw (Engineered Floors, LLC).

 

The Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia serves more than a dozen counties across the region, as well as reaches out to other counties in Georgia, as needed. “We work diligently and passionately to help the families and organizations with their goals to be more philanthropic,” added Aft. “This endowment honoring Governor Deal is just one more great example of this.”

 

“We are appreciative of what the Governor has done for us,” added Yarbrough. “And, we are appreciative of what GNTC has done with the expansion of the Whitfield Murray Campus of the college. One which includes the commitment of a new building opening next year.” Governor Deal, GNTC President Pete McDonald, Yarbrough and Northwest Georgia business leaders and legislators broke ground on the 80,000-square foot facility set to open in 2019.

 

For more information on this new scholarship opportunity formed by businesses and leaders of Northwest Georgia to help fund the academic careers of students attending Georgia Northwestern, contact the Georgia Northwestern Technical College Foundation at 706-802-5850. The GNTC Foundation helps encourage private contributions in order to build and maintain outstanding academic and support programs at the college.
