CLARKESVILLE - Gwendolyn Brown, a longtime member of the library staff at North Georgia Technical College, has retired.<br />
"It's been great, but it's going to get greater," she said of her time with NGTC and her outlook on life in general. "I've had great librarians to work with: Dawn Adams, Caroline Frick, Christina Teasley, and Chris Bryant. Now I'm going to spend time with my family."<br />
She's worked in the library for the past 15 years.<br />
Meanwhile, Diane Laslie has completed her transition from adjunct to full-time faculty on the NGTC Blairsville Campus.<br />
Following the retirement of Business Administrative Technology instructor Fran Thomas, Laslie stepped up from part-time to full-time as she and Thomas basically swapped roles and responsibilities.
