TCSG Alumni of the Year Award winners

Chattahoochee Tech Grad Mark Haney Named As TCSG Foundation 2017 Alumnus of the Year

WellStar Health System’s Senior Vice President of Real Estate, Facilities and Development Mark Haney of Marietta, a Chattahoochee Technical College Alumnus, received the Technical College System of Georgia Foundation 2017 Alumnus of the Year award presented at a TCSG Foundation awards ceremony held on Dec. 7 in Atlanta.

Haney’s education and career have their roots in technical education. As a high school student in 1977, he enrolled in the Emergency Medical Technician program at Marietta/Cobb Vocational Technical School, which is now Chattahoochee Technical College. After earning his EMT certification, he worked for a local ambulance service. He later continued his education at Georgia State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in respiratory therapy and then master’s degrees in business administration and health administration.

Haney has worked with WellStar Health System since 1978 and served for many years as president of WellStar Paulding Hospital.

“Over my several decades of working with the technical college, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Mr. Haney,” said Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb. “His passion for lifelong learning and unwavering commitment to technical education as well as his strong community leadership all speak to his worthiness for receiving this prestigious recognition.”

The TCSG Foundation recognizes outstanding alumni of TCSG-affiliated colleges each year at its “A Taste of TCSG” alumni awards program. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal along with TCSG Commissioner Gretchen Corbin presented the awards at this year’s event.
