The announcement was made at the College’s GOAL recognition luncheon on January 24th, 2018 at Gainesville Civic Center.

Johnson was chosen by a panel of local leaders over three other nominees for the award. The runners-up were Rodica Nemes, Forsyth County, Practical Nursing; David Tapia, Hall County, Cosmetology; and Melissa Thornton, Dawson County, Accounting.

GOAL, a statewide program of the Technical College System of Georgia, honors excellence in academics and leadership among the state’s technical college students. Local GOAL winners are selected at each of the state’s 22 technical colleges as well as one Board of Regents college with a technical education division.

The announcement of Johnson as the Lanier Technical College’s GOAL winner was made by Dr. Ray Perren, Lanier Technical College President.

Johnson will now proceed to regional judging. All college GOAL winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Atlanta for two days in April. Nine regional finalists, three finalists from the three regions, will be announced in Atlanta on April 25, 2018. A panel of leaders from the business, industry and government sectors will interview them and choose one to be the 2018 state GOAL winner and the recipient of the GOAL medallion.

The grand prize also includes a new car, courtesy of Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, the statewide corporate sponsor of the GOAL program.
