Warner Robins, Ga. – A Houston County High School student earned honorable mention recognition in the 2019 Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) student art design contest. Governor Brian Kemp and the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) recognized high school junior, Brianna Carswell, during the MAW Governors’ Award Luncheon on April 18, 2019, at the Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta.
Earlier this year, students from around the state submitted design entries featuring Georgia manufacturers and their products. CGTC serves as a local sponsor of the design contest in the 11-county service area of the College. Students in all local elementary, middle and high schools were invited to participate.
The College extends congratulations to Carswell on her achievement.
The awards luncheon is the highlight of MAW, celebrated this year April 15-19. Co-hosted by TCSG and the Georgia Department of Economic Development, MAW brings attention to this significant component of Georgia’s economy. Winning entries from across the state were displayed at the luncheon.
Alongside other Georgia primary and secondary school winners at the luncheon, Carswell and her peers learned about the impact of manufacturing on the state’s economy, as the state awarded its manufacturers of the year.
