Four Members of OFTC Board of Directors Retire | People
DUBLIN - Oconee Fall Line Technical College President Dr. Lloyd Horadan recognized four members of the College’s Board of Directors for nine years of dedicated service at the group’s June 28th board meeting in Dublin.
Mr. Larry Mathis of Washington County, Mrs. Marcia C. Dixon of Laurens County, Mr. Gary Hutchins of Jefferson County, and Ms. Susan Coffee of Dodge County retired from the Board of Directors after serving three consecutive three year terms.
Mr. Mathis and Mr. Hutchins both began their service with Sandersville Technical College in 2003, and Mrs. Dixon and Ms. Coffee began their service with Heart of Georgia Technical College in 2003. Each board member maintained their full membership throughout the merger of the two colleges in 2011. Mr. Mathis also served as OFTC’s first Board of Directors Chairman in its inaugural 2011-2012 fiscal year.
“On behalf of the Board and everyone at Oconee Fall Line Technical College, I would like to personally thank each of these board members for their dedication and outstanding service to Oconee Fall Line Technical College,” said Dr. Horadan. “Each of them has been a loyal supporter of our College and true to our mission to serve our students and the workforce needs of the region.”
Members of the board are approved by the State Board for the Technical College Systems of Georgia and are eligible to serve three consecutive terms; each term is three years. The Board is a governing entity that makes critical decisions for the College. Board members meet on a monthly basis and rotate meetings between Sandersville and Dublin.
The now fifteen-member board is made up of community leaders representing the OFTC service delivery area, which includes Bleckley, Dodge, Glascock, Hancock, Jefferson, Laurens, Telfair, Warren, Washington, Wheeler, and Wilkinson counties.
