RPA Finalists Announced

The Rick Perkins Award of Excellence in Technical Instruction has been an ongoing local and statewide event since 1991 and is designed to recognize technical college instructors who make significant contributions to technical education through innovation and leadership in their fields.

This year's nominees are Ron Gaines, Instructor and Department Chair, Business Technology; Jackie Beacham, Instructor and Department Chair, Information Technology; and Mike Engel, Instructor, Aircraft Structural Technology.

These three finalists were nominated by CGTC faculty and staff based upon their achievement and leadership. These nominees are interviewed by a panel of local education, business, and industry leaders who then select the college winner. Local college winners will go on to compete at a consortium level in August. This year's state winner will be selected at the 2005 Lighthouse Institute in September and will represent Georgia's Technical and Adult Education system throughout the state for the next year.
