GNTC Foundation establishes Alumni Advisory Board

August 18th, 2021 – 3:08 PM

Georgia Northwestern Technical College –

Throughout the spring and summer months of 2021, the Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Foundation coordinated with college graduates to create the GNTC Alumni Advisory Board.

Currently 12 members strong, the board will provide feedback during meetings and offer insight from a former student’s point of view to make an impact on the college. At the board’s first meeting on July 23, alumni were briefed on the latest initiatives at Georgia Northwestern by GNTC President Dr. Heidi Popham.

“We established the GNTC Alumni Advisory Board in order to better connect with alumni across our region,” said Popham. “GNTC graduates are our best ambassadors and can offer invaluable feedback on how we can foster even greater connections throughout our nine-county service area.”

Advisory board members represent organizations throughout GNTC’s service area. For Blake Elsberry, sole Chattooga County commissioner, it is an honor and privilege to be a part of the board.

“As a past graduate and local community leader, I know firsthand the importance GNTC has played in my life and the lives of northwest Georgia residents,” he said.
