Central Georgia Technical College receives donations to start new programs

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Central Georgia Technical College received a donation to help the barbering and cosmetology programs at its three campuses.  The equipment came from the state’s licensing division.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp took a toured the barbering and cosmetology departments at CGTC’s Macon campus Thursday.

“It is great to give this equipment to this college,” Kemp said. “It shows good government and also will save the college some money.”

Barber chairs, mannequin heads, sterilizers, and massage tables are some of the equipment items given to the college.

CGTC’s Assistant Vice President, Janet Kelly, says the equipment will help the school start a new barbering program at their Milledgeville campus, which currently has a cosmetology program.  The resources will also add to the existing programs at the Macon and Warner Robins campuses.

President Ivan Allen says he is very thankful to Kemp and the state government for the donation.

“Many of these students in the barbering and cosmetology program are going to become entrepreneurs and start their own businesses which ultimately leads to a better local economy,” Allen said.
