CGTC Selects 2011 EAGLE Ambassador

CGTC Adult Education student Julian Gallemore was selected as Central Georgia Technical College’s 2011 Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) Ambassador. The award was presented during CGTC’s EAGLE Leadership Competition and Award Ceremony.

Gallemore was chosen from a group of seven individuals who were nominated by their adult education instructors. Three students, including Gallemore, were interviewed by a panel of judges from the central Georgia community.

Enrolled in GED classes in Bibb County, Gallemore was nominated by Adult Education Program instructor, Tammy Webb.

For the next year, Gallemore will act as a local ambassador for literacy education. He will receive an all-expense-paid trip to the state EAGLE Leadership Institute, scheduled for February in Atlanta. The institute provides workshops in building strong leadership and character skills.

The EAGLE program recognizes and honors learners who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in statewide adult literacy classes. The EAGLE program is designed to create a greater awareness of the educational opportunities available in local communities across the state and to foster involvement in lifelong learning pursuits.
