This past month the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools voted to reaffirm the accreditation of one of our local higher learning institutions, Georgia Perimeter College (GPC).
This is a testimony to GPC interim president Ron Watts and his whole administration.
The financial tragedy that befell the college in 2012 brought on by alleged mismanagement almost ruined the local school.
There is no mistaking the fact that GPC is one of the cornerstones of future growth here in Newton County and that as a community it deserves our full support.
This confidence shown by the SACS should install confidence in our local students and their families that Georgia Perimeter is here for the long haul.
