Thomasville- The president of Southwest Georgia Technical College is being called to duty at the state level.

     Doctor Frieda Hill will serve as the interim Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Technical and Adult Education in Atlanta. She will start on July first. Doctor Hill says that she is very much honored to be asked to fill the role, although it will be bittersweet for her. "I'm sad to leave Thomasville. This is my home. I've been here almost four and a half years. But at the same time, I don't know how to say no to my boss," says Hill.

     The primary goal of Doctor Hill's new office is to ensure that all programs and services meet students' needs. Georgia has 34 technical colleges spread throughout the state.
