Ru Zhen Zou of Floyd County has been chosen to represent Georgia Northwestern Technical College at the EAGLE Leadership Institute March 25-27, 2014. The Leadership Institute recognizes and honors those students who have demonstrated superior achievement in adult education classes and programs.
EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation that recognizes and rewards excellence among students enrolled in adult education programs. This student recognition program is designed to create greater awareness of educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster greater involvement in lifelong learning pursuits.
Other nominees and county winners are Rena Couzzart (Polk), Jose R. Davalos (Whitfield), Faye Johnson (Chattooga), Terry Wallin (Walker), Doris White (Catoosa), and Kelvin Lee Wilbanks (Murray).
“We are so proud of each of the county EAGLE winners and Ru Zhen Zou will be an excellent GNTC delegate,” said Connie Smith, vice president of Adult Education at GNTC. “She has overcome great obstacles and is extremely dedicated to accomplishing her goals.”
The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) through its Office of Adult Education (OAE) sponsors the annual Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) Leadership Institute.
