South Georgia State College Interim President Dr. Greg Tanner and members of SGSC’s faculty and staff welcomed the Leadership Waycross Class of 2023 to the Waycross Campus recently as part of Leadership Waycross Education Day.

The class enjoyed lunch and opening remarks from Dr. Tanner then watched a short demonstration of the newest patient simulation equipment used by SGSC’s School of Nursing. Following a brief introduction from Interim Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Sara Selby, the group heard from the chairs of SGSC’s bachelor’s degree programs and how the programs are providing a positive impact on the region.

Those speaking to the group were Amy Fitzgerald (Early Childhood/Special Education); Dr. Joseph Holloway (Management/Public Service Leadership); Dr. Kimberly Hunt (Biological Sciences); Kasey Strickland (Nursing/Long-Term Healthcare Management); and Dr. Rauf Tailony (Mechanical Engineering Technology). Fitzgerald is a member of the 2023 Leadership Waycross class. Students Leanna Howard (Early Childhood/Special Education) and Shelby Hutto (Mechanical Engineering Technology) also shared their experiences with the group.

Leadership Waycross is sponsored by the Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce. According to the Chamber’s website, “the mission of Leadership Waycross is to maintain a continuing broad base of active, informed, and effective leaders for our community.” SGSC is grateful for its partnership with the Chamber and for the opportunity to host the Leadership Waycross class each year.
