“We appreciate the time and effort each Coastal Pines Technical College Local Board Member dedicates to help the College carry out its mission. Our Local Board Members advise the College of local business, industry and community needs and advocate on behalf of the College on issues of importance in support of the Technical College System of Georgia and Georgia’s workforce development efforts. Ted Buford, Gwen Mungen and Joy Burch-Meeks have done an outstanding job representing their communities and we appreciate all they have done to help ensure student success,” stated Dr. Glenn Deibert, President of Coastal Pines.

The CPTC Local Board of Directors represents a variety of business, industry, and economic development backgrounds and provides a wealth of experience and wisdom.
