Gainesville man receives NGTC Alumni Career Achievement Award

By Ken Stanford Reporter
CLARKESVILLE - Each year North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) recognizes Alumni who have excelled in their professions.

Gainesville resident Brad Gooch was chosen recently as one of two recipients of this year's Career Achievement Award. The other went to Jeff Gulle of Sautee.

Career Achievement Awards are given to graduates of NGTC working in the field for which they studied at the college. The winners must have distinguished themselves in their careers and be respected by fellow employees and by citizens of their community.

"I am so delighted with our award winners today," said President Dr. Gail Thaxton. "We can continue to be a great and strong school because we stand on the shoulders of those who are successful because they came here."

Gooch is a 2007 graduate with a diploma in Air Conditioning Technology and a degree in Advanced Commercial Refrigeration. Mr. Gooch was the NGTC GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award for Leadership) representative in 2008. He is the Sales and Marketing Manager at Lawson Air Conditioning & Pluming, Inc., in Gainesville and serves on the NGTC Air Conditioning Advisory Board.

Presenting the nomination was NGTC Instructor Glenn Jordan, who noted "Brad is a friend to all from the word go," he said. "He is an inspiration to our students and comes back often to give them tips and advice as they pursue their new careers."
