ALBANY, GA (WALB) -- Of Georgia's 26 technical colleges, the schools based in Albany and Valdosta rank among the top four.

Albany Tech is one of four technical colleges nominated for Governor Sonny Perdue's Technical College of the Year Award.

The award went to Wiregrass Technical College in Valdosta. Albany Tech President Dr. Anthony Parker says his schools attention to placement enrollment and stewardship put them in the top four.

"The great feeling about this is that you go around Albany and you find people that are constantly doing well because they started or graduated from Albany Tech and it's a great feeling and a great job to have and a good time to be at Albany Tech," said Dr. Anthony Parker, Albany Technical College President.

Judging for the award is based on almost two dozen criteria including enrollment numbers, graduation rate, student retention, job placement rate, and cost efficiency.
