Ron Newcomb, the new president of Chattahoochee Technical College, was introduced to and welcomed at a reception by members of the Bartow Chamber of Commerce.
This reception was the first of several set in each of the six counties served by the school. Bartow's campus is in Acworth.
Building a strong workforce for communities in Georgia is Chatt Tech's No. 1 priority, Newcomb told Acworth Patch in February, after he was named the college's new president.
He had served as the interim president of Chatt Tech since Oct. 1, when former president Sanford Chandler stepped down to assume the role of assistant commissioner for global initiatives.
