Dr. Tonja Tift recognized

TIFTON — At Tuesday night's Tift County Board of Education meeting, Dr. Tonja Tift was recognized by Craig Matthews, Tift County Schools' career tech and agriculture education director, for her involvement in the Georgia Association of Career and Technical Education.

Matthews said the Georgia Association of Career and Technical Education is instrumental in providing professional development, networking and new knowledge to all of their CTAE teachers.

"It's just a great organization," he said.

Matthews said for the past couple of years, Tift has been serving as the CTI representative at the state level for the board. He said they recently found out she will now be serving as the president elect for this coming year, which means the following year she will serve as president.

"We're glad to have her serving in that capacity not only for Tift County, but for all of Georgia," he said.

Juan Carlos Diaz, president of Georgia SkillsUSA, who was unable to attend the meeting, was also recognized by Matthews for his performance in the National SkillsUSA competition in Mechatronics. He and another student ended up placing fourth in the nation.
