MILLEDGEVILLE — Increasing awareness about the services offered at Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) within the community and surrounding areas is just one of several goals Dana Davis plans to target in her new role as the vice president of satellite operations north.
“I am extremely excited about my new opportunity to serve our students and CGTC in a different capacity,” she said. “I am dedicated to the college and to our mission, and truly believe that we are in a position to help improve the lives of many people.”
The position was formerly held by Hank Griffeth since 2007. Griffeth took on a new role as the director of operations for the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce and the Development Authority in early March.
Davis assumed the new vice president’s position Feb. 11.
“I’m extremely excited about my new opportunity to serve our students and CGTC in a different capacity,” she said. “This position provides leadership for the college’s operations in Baldwin, Jones, Putnam, Monroe and Crawford counties.”
Davis has worked in the Technical College System of Georgia for 22 years. She began her career at Ogeechee Technical Institute in 1991 as an accounting instructor before serving in various positions, including department chair for the business department, director of financial aid, vice president of administrative services and executive director of facilities management.
“I started working closer with students early in my career when I taught accounting,” she said. “I’m enjoying the idea of coming back to work closely with students and our program offerings.”
She joined the CGTC family in 2007 to work as the vice president of administrative services. Two years later, Davis became the vice president for institutional effectiveness and facilities and later the vice president for facilities and ancillary services.
“My goal is to enhance the public-private partnerships by assuring the college is meeting the needs of businesses and industries,” Davis said. “I plan to facilitate a strong relationship with K-12 public and private schools and the higher education institutions in the areas to provide the very best educational opportunities for students.”
