Boards Vote to Retain STC Name
Thursday, 29 January 2009
January 29-- The Boards of Directors of Southeastern Technical College and Swainsboro Technical College held a joint meeting on January 22, 2009 to discuss the merger between the two colleges.  Held at Swainsboro Tech’s campus, the boards voted unanimously to retain the name ‘Southeastern Technical College.’

“I am convinced our communities will see a spirit of unity as we move forward to insure our combined efforts are financially effective and academically sound,” said Lisa Adams, Chairman of Southeastern Technical College’s Board of Directors.  “Our combined boards felt the name Southeastern Technical College would provide the regional identity we needed for the merged service area.  We are satisfied this merger will benefit both communities and the students we serve.  We all know that change can be a hard pill to swallow but our combined boards and administration are doing everything possible to make sure any changes are in the best interest of the regional areas we serve. We are in the business of personal development and our goal is to make an even greater impact to our communities than we could have each done separately.”

"Given the knowledge of costs and job savings, members of Swainsboro Technical College's Board of Directors all agreed to Southeastern Technical College as the name for the new combined colleges." said Kenny Griffin, Chairman of Swainsboro Technical College's Board of Directors.

The merged college will serve Candler, Emanuel, Jenkins, Johnson, Montgomery, Tattnall, Toombs, and Treutlen counties.  The two colleges will officially merge on July 1, 2009.
