Rick Sharon appointed Business and Industry Services Specialist, Crawford and Monroe Counties

Central Georgia Technical College has announced the appointment of Rick Sharon as Business and Industry Services Specialist for Crawford and Monroe Counties. Sharon will also serve as coordinator of the college's Crawford County Center in Roberta. His new appointment was effective May 1.

Sharon's first appointment to CGTC was in 2004 as a business office technology and computer information technology instructor.

“We are pleased to have Rick Sharon take on this new responsibility at CGTC. He will play an important role as we work to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Crawford and Monroe Counties,” said college president, Dr. Ronald D. Natale, II. “Rick will do a great job in promoting our educational and economic development opportunities in both counties, and to maximize the partnerships and collaborations that are essential to ensure a healthy workforce.”

Sharon says he is ready to aggressively pursue several areas.

"Initially, we want to get the tech prep program with Crawford County High School operational. CGTC has a lot to offer to those students who are about to begin their individual careers," Sharon said. "I also want to get out into the community and various industries of both Crawford and Monroe Counties to gain a better understanding as to what they do, then to see what courses we can offer to current and future employees to meet their needs. Eventually, we would like to explore a program, or set of programs that would be specific to and enhance the Crawford County Center; if you want to learn this specific trade, you will find it here. I have received a number of ideas, and want to work with the business and industrial communities in researching the possibilities."
