ATC Recognizes Graduates

Group Photo
JESUP, Ga. (February 2014) – Altamaha Technical College held its winter graduation ceremony Saturday, February 1 at the Wayne County High School Auditorium in Jesup.


Before a large crowd, and assisted by Board Jeff Baxley of Appling County, Altamaha Technical College Acting President Lonnie Roberts conferred associate degrees, diplomas, technical certificates of credit and General Education Diplomas (GED) to an excited Class of 2013, most whom completed their coursework during the Fall 2013 semester.

Judge R. Violet “Vi” Bennett of Wayne County addressed the graduates as the keynote speaker, encouraging the graduating class to understand that “life is a path.”  Her remarks for the graduates were focused on 4 words beginning with the letter “P.”  Prayer, a Passport, Photographs, and a Plan were stressed in Judge Bennett’s speech.  To begin every day with a prayer; to have a diploma for a passport through life; to take photographs in your mind of where you are and where you want to be; and to make sure one has a plan for direction in life were the four main thoughts for the graduates.  Once the four P’s are achieved, Judge Bennett stated, “your life will change, and you will need to change “pots.”   Make lots of memories, continue to grow and be replanted in lots of pots.” Judge Bennett serves as the State Court Judge for Wayne County and is also a partner in Bennett & Lindsey, P.C. in Jesup.   

Chad Swanson, acting Director for Institutional Effectiveness at Altamaha Technical College, served as the graduation’s emcee, welcoming the graduating class, faculty, staff, family and friends. Margaret Brunson, Cosmetology Instructor, led the singing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” and Wayne Keller, Jr., a GED graduate, led the Pledge of Allegiance. Jeffrey Poulin, a Welding and Joining Technology graduate, gave the invocation. Shannon Thornton, a Criminal Justice graduate, presented the “Student’s Point of View” and Walt Pinder, Dean for Academic Affairs, gave the Roll Call of Graduates. Karla Eubanks, Vice President for Student Affairs, assisted Board Chair Baxley in presenting the Academic Awards, while Dr. Al Cunningham, Vice President for Academic Affairs, assisted Acting President Roberts in both presenting the President’s Scholastic Medals and recognizing the Honor Graduates. Swanson gave the closing remarks followed by Poulin, who gave the benediction.

Officials will break ground on the proposed Altamaha Technical College campus in Glynn County in the coming weeks with construction to start by summer, officials with the school say.

Representatives with IPG Architects, project architect, and Elkins Construction, the company responsible for the construction of the technical school, met with community leaders recently and walked them through the plan.

Elkins was the contractor for the construction of the new Brunswick High School.

The plan calls for one building initially with 53,000 square feet of space. A 2,241 square foot commercial truck driving facility also will be part of the Glynn County campus.
