I am a Knight!

See the stories of some of our current students!

Carly Rider - I chose WGTC to pursue a career in Radiologic Technology. The program I was accepted into has given me all the tools needed to be successful. My professors truly are the best cheerleaders and do everything possible to make sure we are reaching our goals. WGTC has changed my life by allowing me to meet classmates that will be lifelong friends, while challenging me academically at the same time. My future plans are to pass the registry and become a Radiologic Technologist. Later I hope to continue my education in ultrasound. I am very thankful for the journey I have had at WGTC.

Jordan Lindall - As a working adult seven years out of high school, I was struggling to find a college that would work with my schedule and budget. After many phone calls with online and local colleges, I found an ally in a WGTC advisor. One phone call with someone that cared, and I knew I wanted to attend West Georgia Technical College. I will forever be grateful for the time I spent here. Every one of my classes have been immersive and truly helpful, and WGTC has helped me design a plan for my future without any added stress or unnecessary obstacles. I have been accepted into Mercer University’s adult program where I will pursue my bachelor’s in Social Work with a minor in Library Science. Danielle Moynihan - After 13 years in the workforce, I needed a change. I chose WGTC because it was close to home and has an amazing radiology program. Being a student at WGTC has changed my life. I have met wonderful teachers, techs, and classmates in the radiology program that have helped mold me and will forever be in my life. After graduation, I plan to work at my favorite hospital, pursue my bachelor’s degree, and go into nuclear medicine.

Laken Thompson - "West Georgia Tech has changed my life by giving me every opportunity to better myself and everything I need to succeed. I never looked forward to going to college, but now I wake up in the mornings excited to get to do something I love every day. I look forward to working in a salon and building my clientele, and someday I hope to own a salon and give cosmetology students a place to assist before they graduate." Keyshauna Pipitone - "When I decided to further my education, I chose West Georgia Technical College because it offered so many programs to choose from and flexible classes that allow me to fit school into my schedule. I am so thankful to WGTC for giving me the opportunity to follow my career goals and work towards providing a better life for my kids and my family."

Abigail Shaffer - "After high school, I immediately jumped into the workforce and got married, so starting college for the first time at the age of 39 was terrifying! I have just completed my first semester here, and I am overjoyed at my choice to attend WGTC. My professors went above and beyond to help guide and teach me, and WGTC has allowed me the affordability and flexibility that I need as a full-time working mom. My boss has even noticed an improvement in my writing skills! I look forward to obtaining a business degree from WGTC and securing my future development in the workforce." Tiffany Brown - “WGTC has given me the most rewarding experiences a student could have. It has challenged me to work harder than ever before and learn what it takes to be a successful Radiologic Technologist. At WGTC I am not just another number passing through…my success actually matters.” Jasmine Jackson - "I knew I wanted more out of life than just being a CNA. I researched community colleges and chose WGTC after hearing great things about the cosmetology program and instructors. Changing careers isn’t easy, but I have three children at home who motivate me to pursue my dreams and an amazing cosmetology instructor who will not let me give up. I am so grateful to WGTC for helping me find a career I really love! I look forward to opening my own salon after graduation."
