One new board member was recently appointed to the Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Local Board of Directors by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia. Kurt Davis, Vice President and COO of Beasley Timber, was sworn in Aug. 15 by Karen Batten, Probate Judge of Brantley County.
The CPTC local board of directors serves in an advisory capacity to assist the college in accomplishing its mission. The board is composed of 11 members representing the college’s 13-county service area.
“We are thrilled to have Kurt Davis join our Coastal Pines Technical College Board of Directors representing Jeff Davis County. Mr. Davis’s expertise in manufacturing and the timber industry will enable him to provide input regarding current and future workforce development needs here in Southeast Georgia. Beasley Timber plays an important role in our Timber Harvesting dual enrollment program which is being offered for high school students at Jeff Davis High School,” said Dr. Glenn Deibert, President of Coastal Pines.
The CPTC board members represent a variety of business, industry, and economic development backgrounds and bring a wealth of experience and wisdom. Board members often communicate community needs to the president and administration and, as a result, CPTC considers its local Board of Directors a vital asset in the quest to fulfill the mission of the college.
