ANNUAL REPORT 2012


President’s Message Dear friends and supporters, It was my pleasure to be appointed Interim President of Okefenokee Technical College in April 2012 when the current president, Dr. Gail Thaxton, was named President of North Georgia Technical College. It is also my pleasure to report the accomplishments of OTC for academic year 2012. Last year was quite eventful, beginning with the transition from a quarter to semester system. Implementing a semester system better aligns OTC’s calendar with other school schedules, allowing more high school students to participate in OTC’s dual enrollment program and allowing more OTC graduates to transfer without delays. Also in AY 2012, the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) voted to approve the Georgia Higher Education Completion Plan. Approval of the plan set in motion a collaborative effort between the TCSG and University System of Georgia (USG) to build and reinforce seamless education pathways, resulting in a new transfer agreement that will allow additional courses from TCSG-accredited colleges to transfer to all USG degree-granting institutions. This agreement has expanded from five courses to seventeen. Finally, in an effort to assist students with additional out-of-pocket costs associated with new HOPE regulations, OTC provided further financial assistance through a book loan program, private student loans, and the NelNet Tuition Repayment Plan, a program that assists students with paying tuition and fees by enrollment deadlines. Okefenokee Technical College is proud to provide excellent educational opportunities for students at an affordable price. We hope you will visit us and see the many opportunities available at OTC.

Dr. Glenn Deibert, Interim President Okefenokee Technical College
