February 8, 2007

As the Georgia General Assembly is busy hammering out the 2008 budget, Albany's colleges are busy trying to fight for the piece of the appropriations pie.

Albany Technical College is hoping to keep it's hat in the ring for 10.8 million dollars for the proposed building K facility that would expand the colleges current and future role with MCLB as well as expanding culinary arts program. A move that Albany Tech leaders say is vitally important to enhance the campus.

Albany Technical College President Dr. Anthony Parker said "It's a high priority for both the Committee of Technical and Adult Education and our board and we have had a chance to speak to our legislators and to those who are committed to workforce development in the community. We think it's a high priority for them and a high priority for me."

Albany State is looking for four and a half million dollars to expand instructional space in two current facilities, while Darton College is hoping to get one and a half million dollars for the purchase of the area housing the Albany Museum of Art.
