Americus-  Attendance at South Georgia Technical College in Americus is at an all time high. 

This semester, South Georgia Technical College enrolled 67 more students than last semester. The school has an all-time high enrollment of 1,805. President Sparky Reeves says the increase is attributed to many things. 

"It's got to be our partnerships, We've got partnerships with Warner Robins Airforce Base with Gulf Stream with Caterpillar, the utilities in the area statewide with our local high schools with all our business and industry friends here it's just a variety of things that make a difference here," said Sparky Reeves, South Georgia Technical College President. 

South Georgia Technical College is only one of two technical colleges in the state with dorms that allow them to attract students statewide.
