NGTC Hands Out Annual Alumni Awards

North Georgia Technical College hands out its annual alumni awards.

The school did so at its annual Homecoming events earlier this month.

First, Clarkesville resident and retired North Georgia Technical College President Jim Marlowe was officially inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame by former President Dr. Judy Hulsey.

The Hall of Fame Award is bestowed on a deserving alumnus who graduated from North Georgia Tech at least 20 years prior to nomination. The candidate must have distinguished himself/herself in his/her professional life.

Marlowe served as the school’s president from 1969 to his retirement in 1995.

North Georgia Technical College President Dr. Gail Thaxton said that it was an honor to have both Marlowe and Dr. Hulsey in attendance.

Thaxton said that together they have a long list of accomplishments from accreditations to the initiation of outstanding student organizations such as GOAL and HEROES.

Meanwhile, North Georgia Tech Purchasing Manager Jeannie Barrett, Toccoa Clinic Network Director Ricky Crocker, and North Georgia Tech Marine Engines Instructor Morris Harrison were chosen as recipients of this year’s Career Achievement Awards.

Career Achievement Awards are given to graduates of NGTC working in the field for which they studied at the college. The winners must have distinguished themselves in their careers and be respected by fellow employees and by citizens of their community.
