GNTC Commencement Ceremony in Dalton Dec. 11

More than 200 graduates from across Northwest Georgia will be walking the stage at the Dalton Convention Center December 11 as they graduate from Georgia Northwestern Technical College.

GNTC’s 2018 GOAL (Georgia’s Occupational Award of Leadership) Award winner, Macey Morgan, will be giving the graduating class their commencement speech. The Dalton, Georgia resident represented the college in the GOAL competition this past spring in Atlanta, Georgia.

An estimated 1,500 family members and friends are anticipated to be in attendance at the college’s commencement exercise. GNTC holds two ceremonies each year. A spring graduation each May in Rome, Georgia and a fall graduation each December in Dalton, Georgia.
