CGTC travel to Afghanistan to help create an associate degree program

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Two Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) administrators are helping to develop a two-year associate degree program in Afghanistan.

CGTC’s Vice President of Technology Gardner Long, and the Director of Educational Technology Carol Lee, traveled to Kabul Polytechnic University to help the college develop an Information Technology Associate Degree program.

Long and Lee say they have also established a relationship with their foreign partners.

“There are so many children and students that finish high school but can’t get into the Kabul, to the Afghanistan University because of limited enrollment,” says Long. “That they just don’t have a way to lift themselves above high school.”

The two administrators stayed at a compound that was surrounded by a concrete wall and a fence to keep intruders out.

They say they felt safe because of their security details which was with them at all times. The CGTC administrators traveled in armored cars.
