Pete McDonald has been tapped to serve as the next president of Georgia Northwestern Technical College.

The state board that oversees the Technical College System of Georgia unanimously approved the selection of McDonald as the next GNTC president at their monthly meeting in Atlanta on Thursday, according to a TCSG media release.

McDonald has been serving as the acting president of the college since April, following the retirement of Craig McDaniel.

TCSG Commissioner Ron Jackson states, “I know that Pete McDonald is one of the very best economic development professionals in the state.  He’s also a top-notch administrator who has made many valuable contributions to Georgia Northwestern Technical College and the people of the region it serves.  He understands the business of education, where students are always his focus and workforce development is his aim.  I’m very confident in his excellent skills and abilities and I know that he’ll prove to be a great president.”

McDonald has been associated with GNTC since he joined the college as vice president of economic development in April 1995.
