Dr. Jay Kramer selected as CGTC's Rick Perkins Winner

Central Georgia Technical College President Mike Moye recently announced that Dr. Jay Kramer, Criminal Justice instructor and Department Head for the College of Public Services, was named as CGTC’s winner of the Rick Perkins Award of Excellence for 2012-2013.

The Rick Perkins Award (RPA), a statewide program of the Technical College System of Georgia, honors technical education’s most outstanding instructors and excellence in academics and leadership among the state’s technical college faculty. The local RPA winners are selected at each of the state’s 25 technical colleges.

Kramer will now proceed to regional judging. All college RPA winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Atlanta for two days in April. Nine finalists, three regional finalists from the three regions, will be announced while in Atlanta and if chosen, he will compete with the other eight RPA finalists from the other state technical college campuses. A panel of leaders from the business, industry and government sectors will interview them and choose one to be the 2012 state RPA winner.

Kramer has Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Georgia Southern College, a Master’s in Public Administration from Georgia College, and a Ph. D. in Public Safety with concentration in Criminal Justice from Capella University. Kramer previously worked with the Macon Police Department for over 12 years and was Director of the Law Enforcement Training Center of Middle Georgia during that time.
