ATLANTA (AP) — The Technical College System of Georgia will soon see leadership changes at two of the system's institutions.

The state board for the system voted unanimously on Thursday to name Andrea Daniel as the next president of Athens Technical College, and John Watford as the new president of South Georgia Technical College.

Both presidents will begin their new roles on April 1.

Daniel currently serves as executive vice president of Athens Technical College. Watford is the current vice president for academic affairs at South Georgia Technical College in Americus, Ga.

Commissioner Gretchen Corbin said both schools are crucial to the state's workforce development efforts, and that both newly-appointed presidents have proven track records in education.
