Dr. Cartee said Saturday "Obtaining SACSCOC accreditation is one of the most significant accomplishments in the history of Ogeechee Technical College. This will open additional doors for our students and provide them with a more seamless transition to other institutions, should they choose to further their education."
Ogeechee Tech joins other schools such as Georgia Southern University, The University of Georgia Tech and 800 more accredited colleges and universities. It is retroactive to January 1 of this year.
In Saturday's statement, Cartee said without the hard work of the faculty and staff, students, local board of Directors, foundation trustees and numerous community members Ogeechee Tech could not have reached this goal.
Board of Directors Chairman Roger Moore said "It is an honor to serve on the board of such a wonderful institution. Ogeechee Technical College makes such a positive difference in the lives of students and those served by the college's graduates already, but the SACSCOC accreditation will open the door to even more powerful results."
On behalf of the board he thanked every member of the faculty and staff for the work that was done to help bring this accreditation to reality.
