OFTC selects its EAGLE winner for 2014

Nathaniel Ebner of Glascock County has been chosen to represent Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) at the EAGLE Leadership Institute on March 25 - 27, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia. 

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 Ebner out of a group of nine 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.

"We are so proud of Nathaniel," commented his instructor Monica Mercer. "He has a bright, young mind and will go far."

OFTC's Dean for Adult Education Dr. Saketha Williams said that the faculty and staff are so proud of all of its students and knows that Ebner will represent the college well during the next rounds of competition at the state level.
The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) through its Office of Adult Education (OAE) sponsors the annual Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) Leadership Institute.
