James (Jim) Glass
A new president of Southern Regional Technical College was named this week and he is familiar to the college. James “Jim” Glass, Provost at Southern Regional Technical College, was appointed to the position by Technical College System of Georgia Commissioner Matt Arthur.
“Jim has dedicated his career to advancing opportunity for students through education,” said Commissioner Arthur. “Whether as a teacher early in his career at Dougherty High School in the 1980s or in his latest position as provost at Southern Regional Technical College, Jim works every day to help students reach their full potential. He will be a great leader of the college to continue its legacy of developing a skilled workforce for the region.”
Glass has worked for Southern Regional Technical College for four years since merging with Moultrie Technical College in 2015 where he had worked since 2003. Glass began his postsecondary career as Director of Instruction for Albany Technical College in 1999. Prior to his leadership roles at Georgia technical colleges, Glass spent 13 years in secondary education as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal in Albany.
“I am honored to be chosen as Southern Regional Technical College’s next president,” said Glass. “It is an exciting time to be in technical education and I am committed to building a skilled workforce for business and industry while ensuring each and every person interested in pursuing postsecondary education at our college is given the opportunity to do so.”
Glass holds an Associate of Science degree from South Georgia College, a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Augusta State University, and a Master of Education degree from Georgia Southwestern State University. Glass will assume his new role effective July 1.
The State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia approved Commissioner Arthur’s appointment of Mr. Glass on Tuesday, June 25 in Atlanta. Glass will replace Dr. Craig Wentworth who is retiring.
