"The experience and training that I received at Athens Technical College was truly a stepping stone in the path of my education which helped bring me to where I am today. As a high school graduate who was certain that college was the path I wanted to take, but uncertain of the exact area of study that I wanted to pursue. Athens Technical College provided me with a great solution. I was able to build the foundation for a transfer to the University of Georgia by taking many of the required core curriculums, while also gaining more knowledge and insight in a field that I had great interest in- Drafting.

Mr. Gibson, the head of the Drafting department at Athens Technical College, enhanced my understanding and abilities with computer aided drafting and design, as well as encouraging a strong work ethic through his self-guided approach to covering the course material.

Today I own and operate a grading contracting company in the Athens area, and though drafting is not my primary focus now, the educational and personal experiences that I gained from Athens Technical College, and its staff, certainly benefit me as a professional. I would recommend both Athens Technical College and the drafting design program to anyone who wants to challenge themselves while preparing for a successful future in a variety of fields."
