Central Georgia Technical College has named Bridget Willis as its 2017 Instructor of the Year. The computer technology instructor and division head is the latest winner of the local Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction.

“Bridget is a very hard working individual that cares greatly for her students, her profession and CGTC,” said Jackie Turner, associate dean of Academic Affairs. “She is very dedicated to technical education and advancing it in any way possible.”
