Twelve Valdosta Technical College students were nominated for the GOAL award because of their leadership and excellence in academics. On Tuesday, Elisabeth Harrelson was chosen to advance to the regional competition.

"I'm just excited and would love for everybody to know that with a technical education they can gain a great experience and a great education and they can leave with the keys to success," said Harrelson.
