Advise on program direction via their personal subject matter expertise and awareness of area business needs for program decisions and priorities. 2.) Serve as a check and balance for the development and implementation of college goals and objectives as well as operations policies and procedures; and 3.) advocate within the community and in the state legislature on issues of importance in support of the technical college system and Georgia’s workforce development efforts.

The seven-member board is made up of community leaders representing the SGTC service delivery area, which includes Sumter, Schley, Crisp, Macon, Marion, Webster and Taylor counties.

The other members of the SGTC Board of Directors include: Don Porter, George Bryce and Janet Siders of Americus, Jake Everett of Webster County, Mattie Gordon of Taylor County, and Richard McCorkle from Marion County.
