However they choose to support West Georgia Tech, these business partners are essential to our success and ensure an even greater impact in the communities we serve.
“The first question local employers ask pertains to a community’s workforce and the challenges of adequate training. WGTC meets these challenges by providing students a choice when it comes to higher education – a choice that meets the needs of employers in a constantly changing work environment. WGTC’s wide variety of career training opportunities creates a launching pad for future success!”
Brandon Lovett – Director of Water Operation, Newnan Utilities
“WGTC produces the future stars of our community and local economy. From healthcare to related fields, WGTC does an outstanding job of preparing students to be tomorrow’s workforce and beyond. By selecting the highest caliber and quality of students, WGTC ensures the school’s and student’s success in the future.”
Michael Robertson – CEO, Piedmont Newnan Hospital
“Because West Georgia Technical College is plugged directly into the needs of local employers, students receive highly focused, practical training in exactly the kinds of skills that are in demand in the labor market. Earnings for associate degree grads can even exceed those with a bachelor’s degree in some fields. Graduates in healthcare programs and in advanced manufacturing fields can expect very healthy entry-level salaries and good earning potential down the road. It’s a win-win for both industry and students.”
