CORDELE. GA – The South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) Crisp County Center in Cordele recently recognized several students for outstanding work in their respective programs. Logan Harris of Cordele, a Computer Information Systems (CIS) student, was named the overall September 2020 Student of Excellence for the SGTC Crisp County Center.

Harris was nominated by SGTC CIS instructor Randall Greene. “Logan is a hard-working student and positive representative for SGTC,” said Greene.

In accepting the honor, Harris said “I am proud to be nominated and to represent my fellow students. I want to thank Mr. Greene, Mrs. Jolly, Mrs. Bloodworth and all the other teachers and staff at South Georgia Tech.”

After nominations are submitted, a committee of SGTC staff members use a point system to determine the winner.
