LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) Officials from the organization governing Georgia's technical colleges say an interim president has been appointed to serve at Gwinnett Technical College.
David H. Welden has been named interim president of the school in Lawrenceville. Officials say Welden is currently the school's vice president for finance and administration.
The college's president, Sharon Bartels, announced plans to retire earlier this year and said in a statement that Welden is in a good position to direct the college and continue the school's commitment to student success.
Officials say Welden earned a bachelor and master of business administration at Georgia State University, and is a certified public accountant.
College system officials say GTC is the state's second largest technical college, with an enrollment of about 20,000.
