Moultrie Tech Selection Committee Vets Final GOAL Candidates
Members of the Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce Workforce Development committee and area community leaders served as the selection team for Moultrie Technical College’s 2014 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership [GOAL] winner through a series of interviews and speeches given by four student finalists on January 28. The announcement of the winning candidate, or MTC Student of the Year, will be made at a luncheon scheduled for January 30, weather permitting, in the MTC Southwest Georgia Bank Conference Center on the Veterans Parkway Campus in Moultrie. A statewide winner will be selected in April and will travel the state for a full year speaking on behalf of Georgia’s Technical College System. The objective of the GOAL program is to recognize and reward excellence among the more than 190,000 students studying full-time at Georgia's technical colleges. GOAL was the first statewide program in the nation to honor outstanding technical education students.
