Shining the Spotlight On …
LaShell Williams is a shining example of Georgia Piedmont Tech success. While driving growth for a technology protection company in a management position, she has also made time to author four books. Balancing a career with a demanding travel schedule that has led her to 41 states has not been easy, but helping others through her books of empowerment makes it all worth it for Williams.
This drive for success started at Georgia Piedmont Tech. Williams chose Georgia Piedmont Tech because of its ability to quickly increase her earning potential while on her track to a bachelor’s degree. “I did a lot of research and discovered the dynamic programs available right here,” Williams said. “I enrolled and received my associate’s degree. It opened doors; I received twice as many interviews. I truly realized the empowerment of education.”
Williams said her time at Georgia Piedmont Tech inspired her to finish obtaining her bachelor’s degree Shorter University and pursue her master’s degree Keller Graduate School.
