Bickerton holds the honor of being the first state Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) winner from Ogeechee Technical College. When Molly was selected as the GOAL winner in 2008, she was enrolled in the radiologic technology program. The award meant she was Student of the Year for Ogeechee Tech and for the Technical College System of Georgia. More importantly, GOAL winners are considered lifetime advocates for technical education, and Molly has been an enthusiastic, champion true advocate to this day.

After graduating from the radiologic technology program in 2009, Molly joined the staff at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah where she was voted by her coworkers as one of the Top 100 employees for 2011. She was also asked in 2011 to be the first radiographer in the United States to assist a neurosurgeon as part of the Triumph artificial disc replacement pilot study. Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah was one of only five sites in the nation selected to participate in a pilot study to test the disc.

While employed at Memorial University, Molly earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Care Administration, as well as a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Health Care Management. In January 2015, she returned to Ogeechee Technical College, but this time as an employee. Her experience as a student and GOAL winner and her devotion to technical education made her a perfect fit for Ogeechee Tech’s first academic advisor position.

As an academic advisor, Molly makes a positive impact on the lives of numerous students each day and plays a vital part in their educational success. She also continues to advocate for technical education by accepting speaking engagements and participating in the Go Back Move Ahead campaign, a program that encourages former students to return to college and complete their preferred program of choice.

More than 700 CPTC students have earned a credential from Coastal Pines and are eligible for graduation. Approximately 70 have made plans to participate in Thursday evening’s ceremony. CPTC president Dr. Glenn Deibert, CPTC board members, trustees, faculty, and staff invite the public to join them in recognizing graduates for their achievements. Family and friends of graduates are encouraged to arrive early. Coastal Pines Technical College is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.
