LTC, NGTC announce GOAL winners

By Staff
Lanier Technical College (LTC) and North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) have announced their GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership) winners for this year.

Laura James, a student from Dawson County, has been named the LTC winner. She is a student in the Horticulture Technology program at the Forsyth Campus and was nominated for GOAL by her instructor, Gary Love.

Dustin Bucher, a student in Turf and Golf Course Management, is the NGTC winner. He was nominated by Josh Jackson.

Both will now proceed to Regional Judging later this month.

GOAL winners from each technical college in Georgia will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Atlanta for two days in April. Nine regional finalists, three finalists from the three regions, will be announced in Atlanta on April 24. A panel of leaders from the business, industry and government sectors will interview them and choose one to be the 2013 state GOAL winner and the recipient of the GOAL medallion.

The grand prize also includes a new car, courtesy of Chevrolet, the statewide corporate sponsor of the GOAL program.
