Ge­or­gia Perime­ter

The Covington News - - OPINION -

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.
