Tifton- Abraham Baldwin College President Mike Vollmer will move to Atlanta to head the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education.

Since taking office in 2001, he has helped the school complete nearly $40 million in construction projects and reach record enrollment.

"What I'm going to miss number one the great people, but probably most of all the students. I'm going to miss being able to keep my door open, or walk out this door and talk to students because that's what kept me alive, and always gave me a sense of purpose," Vollmer says.

An interim president has not yet been named. Vollmer says his last day will be around the first of October.
