AMERICUS – Two big free events will be held at South Georgia Technical College on Saturday, July 22, 2023.  The annual South Georgia Technical College Father’s Day Car Show originally set for Saturday, June 17, was rescheduled until Saturday, July 22 due to the threat of severe weather.  And now the SGTC Aviation Maintenance Open House will be held on that same day from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity for the community to come out to South Georgia Technical College and enjoy the car show and also take a tour of the SGTC Aviation Maintenance Department,” said SGTC President Dr. John Watford.
