CLARKESVILLE - Dr. Jim Wade, a member of the North Georgia Technical College Local Board of Directors since March 2007, was recently honored by the board.

Dr. Wade assumed the responsibilities of Chairman in July, 2010. 

“I’ve learned a lot about technical education during the last few years,” he said.  “But the best part has been connecting with the excitement in the community about our students and what they bring to the workforce.”

During Wade’s tenure as Chairman of the Board, the college was faced with the conversion from quarters to semesters and the sweeping changes to Georgia’s Hope scholarship program.  At the same time, progress to upgrade facilities continued with the completion of the Welding Building and the Hoyt Coe renovations, while new projects such as the health wings on the Currahee and Blairsville campuses continue to develop. 

President Dr. Gail Thaxton presented Dr. Wade with an engraved plaque for dedicated services as the Chairman of the Local Board of Directors from July 2010 through June 2012. 

“The guidance from this board has kept the college on the straight path towards the future with integrity and honesty,” noted President Dr. Gail Thaxton.  “With Jim at the helm, we never lost sight of the goal of quality education and the success for our students.”

Chan Caudell will serve as Chairman for the next two-year term while Martha Reabold will serve as co-chair.
