Chattahoochee Technical College honored Board of Directors Member Pam Carnes with a Golden Eagle award on Tuesday, May 14, at the Woodstock Campus for her 12 years of dedicated service on the board.
“It has been a wonderful adventure to serve on this board,” said Carnes. “I began serving on the Appalachian Technical College Board, which then evolved into the Chattahoochee Technical College Board of Directors after the merger. It has been an honor to serve these past 12 years.”
Chattahoochee Technical College Board of Directors Chairman Mark Haney and Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb presented Carnes with the Golden Eagle award. “Pam’s passion for technical education and providing a trained workforce made her an ideal member of our board,” said Haney, who also noted that Carnes served as Board Chairman from 2011 to 2012.
Carnes, of Cherokee County, serves as President and CEO of the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, and recently was elected by the College Delegate Assembly of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), to serve as a member of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees.
“We thank Pam for her leadership, dedication and commitment through her service on the Chattahoochee Technical College Board of Directors,” said Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb. “We wish her the very best as she embarks upon her new journey representing the public sector with the SACSCOC Board of Directors.”
Also at their May meeting, the Chattahoochee Technical College Board of Directors congratulated Chattahoochee Tech Design and Media Production student Samantha Brown for winning the Technical College System of Georgia’s (TCSG) 2019 Winner’s Book design competition. Brown’s design was used for the TCSG 2019 Winner’s Book at the 2019 Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL) and Rick Perkins Awards event, which honored outstanding technical education students and instructors.
