The goal is to highlight these students each academic year.

“The Georgia MOWR program is one of the best programs available for high school students and we anticipate growing our program even more here at Albany Tech in the 2018 academic year and each year to come,” said Dr. Anthony O. Parker, President of Albany Technical College.
