In the spring and summer of 2021, the Northwest Technical College (GNK) Foundation will form a GNK Aluminum Advisory Board in collaboration with college graduates.
Currently, 12 members are strong, the board provides feedback during meetings and provides feedback from the former student to influence the college. At the first meeting of the Board on July 23, the graduates were briefed on the latest initiative by Northwest Georgia by GNKT President Dr. Heidi Poffam.
“We have set up a GNKET Alumni Advisory Board to better meet the graduates in our region,” said Pope. GNTC graduates are our best ambassadors and can provide invaluable feedback on how we can build greater relationships in our nine-county service area.
Advisory Board members represent organizations throughout the GNTC service area. For Blake Elsberry, the only Chatutuga County Commissioner, it is an honor and privilege to be part of the board.
“As a past graduate and leader of the local community, I know the importance GNTC has played in my life and in the lives of the people of Northwest Georgia,” he said.
