Georgia Piedmont Technical College was honored to be recognized as the 2019 Newton County Employer of the Year by The Covington News and its community selection committee. The announcement was made in early March 2019, and GPTC President Holston and other members of the GPTC administration and faculty were on hand to receive the award at the April 25, 2019, Visions Awards reception. The college and its faculty, staff and administration are truly honored to be named the recipient of this award. It speaks to our dedication to the mission of workforce development in Newton County and to providing a qualified, skilled workforce. We are very proud to be a valued community partner and are so grateful for the support we have received from our Newton County friends, neighbors and colleagues.
