State legislators attending the event were (L to R) Representative Jason Spencer (R – Woodbine, District 180), Senator Tyler Harper (R – Ocilla, District 7), Representative Chad Nimmer (R – Blackshear, District 178), Representative John Corbett (R – Lake Park, District 174), Jeff Jones (R – Brunswick, District 167) and Representative Jason Shaw (R – Lakeland, District 176). The college mascot, unofficially called Ray Ray (center), was on hand to welcome everyone.

CPTC board members and foundation trustees attended, as well, to network and glean the latest news on the College from the occasion.

Dr. Deibert addressed the group, providing them with an update on the work of the College. He presented information on ongoing initiatives such as Move On When Ready, which allows high school students to earn college and high school credit simultaneously, as well as past, current, and future initiatives and projects, citing last year’s accomplishments and next year’s plans to impact student success. He also shared information on enrollment and facilities.

Three unique programs offered at CPTC -  Railroad Systems Management Technology, Naval Apprentice Technology, and Timber Harvesting Operations Technology - were discussed. Dr. Deibert explained how all three came about as a result of employer requests and how the programs are closing a gap in the workforce.

Dr. Deibert concluded the presentation by thanking legislators, board members, and trustees for their continued support and for taking time from their busy schedules to learn more about technical education and workforce solutions for Southeast Georgia.

He thanked Gary Sanchez and AT&T, especially, for sponsoring the event. Dr. Deibert noted that AT&T has been a long-time champion of technical education, providing thousands annually to the TCSG Foundation and supporting individual technical college foundations very often, as well. “We sincerely appreciate your friendship and partnership in literacy and higher education,” stated Deibert, to Sanchez.

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