WGTC Trustees board-certifiedFrom STAFF REPORTS
West Georgia Technical College Board of Directors members Rochelle Robinson, Brandon Lovett and Sheri De Shazo were recognized as certified board members by the Technical College Directors Association (TCDA) at the Annual Leadership Conference in Savannah last month.
Robinson represents Douglas County while De Shazo and Lovett represent Coweta County. Lovett currently serves as board chair.
All members of the local board of directors of the state’s 25 technical colleges are automatically members of TCDA but extra steps are taken to become board certified by the TCDA. To receive certification, Board members must attend New Board/Governance, Community Advocacy, Elected Officials and Budget workshops as well as visit at least one class session being taught by their respective technical college as required by the TCDA.
In addition to the workshops, board members also have the option of going on a tour of the technical college conducted by the President or a Vice President, attending at least one graduation at the technical college, or representing the technical college in collaborative efforts with other groups or with the media among other selected activities.
“We are honored to have highly qualified members of our community on our board,” said West Georgia Technical College President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “Their service in leading our community and our college is a testament to their hard work and dedication.”
