Coastal Pines Technical College Officials Update Legislators & Board


Last year’s progress & upcoming priorities


State Senator Tyler Harper (R) and State Representative Jason Spencer (R) were recognized at Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Thursday, November 13, 2014, for their support of technical education and Southeast Georgia. “Technical Education: Progress & Priorities,” the College’s State of the College event held for legislators, board members, and the foundations’ executive committees took place at the Economic Development Training Center on the Waycross campus.

The event began at 6:30 p.m. with a social. Following dinner, which was catered by Sybil’s of Jesup, CPTC President, Dr. Glenn Deibert, presented the latest information on the merger, enrollment, and facilities. He also shared last year’s accomplishments and progress resulting from the 2014 legislative actions, as well as CPTC’s future plans to impact student success.

Deibert asked those present to continue to support dual enrollment as a statewide initiative and encourage area school systems to continue to participate in dual enrolled programs. “These programs benefit our communities and, most importantly, our high school students,” said Deibert.

Dr. Deibert shared details of several major projects that may be brought before legislators in the upcoming session and, if acted upon, will impact the College and its state-affiliated agency, the Technical College System of Georgia. He asked Senator Harper and Rep. Spencer for their continued support and thanked them again for taking time from their busy schedules to learn more about technical education and the workforce needs of Southeast Georgia.

Throughout the evening, board members repeatedly thanked legislators for their support in 2014. At the beginning of the program, Dr. Deibert also thanked Gary Sanchez and AT&T for sponsoring the event. Dr. Deibert noted that AT&T has been a long-time champion of technical education, providing $50,000 annually to the system foundation for GED Testing Fee Scholarships and Grants. “We sincerely appreciate your friendship and partnership in literacy and higher education,” stated Deibert.

“AT&T is proud to be part of this because we recognize the importance of technical education to the community and to business and industry employers,” said Sanchez.

Coastal Pines Technical College is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.
