Officials moving forward with search for Lanier Tech president

By Staff
As the current president of Lanier Technical College prepares to retire at the end of next month, officials with the Technical College System of Georgia have embarked on the search for his replacement.

Russell Vandiver has worked at the school for 37 years, having served as president since September of 2010.

As part of the search effort, Technical College System President Ron Jackson recently announced a seven-person search committee.

Officials with the system said the committee will interview applicants and narrow the field to three. Jackson will then choose one, subject to approval by the board that oversees the system.

The committee is expected to start interviewing applicants in the coming weeks.

Roger Slaton, the agent/owner of State Farm Insurance in Dawsonville and chairman of the Lanier Technical College Board of Directors, will chair of the committee.

Other committee members are Doug Carter, president and broker of Don Carter Realty Company in Gainesville and member of the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia; Kit Dunlap, president and CEO of the Greater Hall County Chamber of Commerce; Gwen Hill, owner of Hill's Ace Hardware and Lumber in Winder; Lynn Jackson, administrator of Northside Hospital-Forsyth and member of the Lanier Technical College Board of Directors; Tracy L. Moon, Jr., partner in the law firm of Fisher and Phillips LLP in Atlanta and member of the Lanier Technical College Foundation Board of Trustees; and Dennis Stockton, publisher of the Gainesville Times.
