New Era Begins Today at North Georgia Tech

North Georgia Technical College bids farewell to retiring President Dr. Gail Thaxton.

Dr. Thaxton has served as North Georgia Technical College President since 2012 when she moved to Habersham County after serving as President at Okefenokee Technical College in Waycross.

She said during her four years at North Georgia Tech, she is most proud of the way faculty and staff leadership has grown. Dr. Thaxton said she is also proud of the new programs North Georgia Tech has offered in engineering and nursing that are attracting students and the state of the campus infrastructure and facilities.

Replacing her as North Georgia Tech President is Dr. Mark Ivester, who has served as the school’s Vice President of Economic Development. Dr. Thaxton’s last day is Sunday and Dr. Ivester takes over as President of North Georgia Technical College today.
