Robert "Bo" Whitehead of Washington County has been chosen to represent Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) at the 2015 EAGLE Leadership Institute in Atlanta, Georgia on March 16-18, 2015.
EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation that recognizes and rewards excellence among students enrolled in adult education programs. This student recognition program is designed to create greater awareness of educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster greater involvement in lifelong learning pursuits.
Students at OFTC were nominated for the local EAGLE award by their instructors based on a demonstration of superior achievement in the adult education programs.
OFTC selected Whitehead out of a group of twelve finalists from across the College's 11-county service area who each gave an interview about their studies, progress, hopes, and dreams and a short, prepared speech.
