OFTC Thanks Hutchins For His Service | Schools
SANDERSVILLE - Oconee Fall Line Technical College President Dr. Lloyd Horadan thanked Gary Hutchins for nine years of dedicated service on the board of directors for the College.
Gary Hutchins retired from the Board of Directors after serving three consecutive three-year terms on behalf of Jefferson County. Mr. Hutchins began this service with Sandersville Technical College in 2003.
As the sheriff of Jefferson County, Hutchins was a key party to incorporating adult education and GED testing the Jefferson County Prison. Before leaving the August meeting, he encouraged the current OFTC board of directors to understand the importance of helping others with a second chance.
“Mr. Hutchins is one of our greatest supporters,” said Dean of Adult Education Saketha Williams. “He helps others help themselves by becoming productive citizens and getting their life on the right track.”
“Mr. Hutchins is an exemplary person and excellent Board Member,” stated Horadan. “He has always been passionate about the mission of our college. I know he will continue to be a strong advocate of Oconee Fall Line Technical College as we continue our work building futures, one student at a time.”
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.
OFTC’s fifteen-member board of directors 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.
