A business student at the Dawson campus of Lanier Techinical College is among 16 nominated for the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership, or GOAL, competition.


“The purpose of the GOAL program is to spotlight the outstanding achievement by students in Georgia’s technical colleges and to emphasize the importance of technical education in today’s global work force,” said Jennifer Pulliam, coordinator of Lanier Tech’s GOAL program. 


Dawson County student Treasure Eliasson is studying business administrative technology.


There are also five nominees from the Forsyth campus and 10 from the Oakwood campus.


Instructors made the nominations. A screening committee of the college’s administrators will review the nominations and interview the students.


Four finalists will then take part in another round of interviews and evaluations by a committee of business and industry representatives.


The college’s 2011 GOAL winner will go on to compete at a regional level and possibly statewide.
