CGTC EAGLE Winners to Compete in Atlanta

Patricia Rainey and Alyssa Forgar are the winners of the Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) competition at Central Georgia Technical College.

Celebrating its twelfth year, the EAGLE program recognizes and honors students who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in statewide adult literacy classes. The Awards Program is designed to create a greater awareness of the educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster involvement in lifelong learning pursuits. EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation to honor outstanding excellence among students in adult literacy programs.

Rainey, a recent graduate of the General Education Development (GED) program, and Forgar, a current student in the GED program, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Atlanta January 19-20. While there they will compete with students from other adult literacy programs in Georgia for the state title of EAGLE winner in the student and graduate categories. The grand prize for each winner is $2,005.

Rainey, of Macon, was nominated by Patricia Covington, CGTC adult literacy instructor. Forgar, of Gray, was nominated by Evelyn Hill, also a CGTC adult literacy instructor.

For the past two years a winner of the state EAGLE competition was from Central Georgia Technical College.
