Troy Lindsey has been announced as the dean of Lanier Technical Colleges Dawson campus. His first day on the job was Feb. 1.
Lindsey says that he was drawn to the Lanier Technical system in particular for its great reputation. I look forward to the challenge of assisting the Dawson campus to continue to grow in service to the community, he said.
Speaking of community, both Lindsey and his wife grew up in northwest Georgia, so he knows the area quite well. Dawson County seems to have the perfect blend of amenities in a rural setting, he said. We expect to be in the community in the next few weeks to begin the process of connecting and participating in the civic activities.
Before coming to Dawson County, Lindsey was Assistant Dean of Students at Shorter Universitys Gwinnett Campus. My major duties at Shorter included academic advising of graduate and undergraduate students, evaluating adjunct instructors, overseeing daily campus operations, supervising student services staff, and teaching professional development, religion and business classes, he said.
He holds a Master of Arts in Christian Education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, a Master of Science in Human Resource Development (Adult Education) and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography, both from Georgia State University.
Lindsey is currently in the process of attaining a Doctor of Educational Ministry degree from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Mo. He expected to graduate by December of this year. The focus of professional degrees is practical problem solving of a particular issue in a job setting, he explained. My work on this degree has intentionally been focused on higher education administration.
He is also an active member of the National Academics Advisors Association.
