The Gwinnett Tech Foundation has a rich history of support and service from our community's most progressive leaders. Over the past 25 years, the active participation of leaders from every segment of our community has helped forge Gwinnett Tech into the eleventh fastest growing two-year college in the country.

The Legacy of Lives Campaign is no exception, with Ed Bastian, president of Delta Air Lines, serving as the honorary campaign chair. Leading the campaign cabinet – an ultimate commitment of hundreds of hours of personal time – are Kim Ryan, CEO of Eastside Medical Center, and Jim McGean, the recently retired president of Verizon Wireless.

A true visionary, McGean has dedicated many hours to GTC. "I am truly inspired by the Gwinnett Tech students' work ethic and dedication to develop themselves. Many of these students have overcome great odds to improve and make a better life for their families. This energizes me to support GTC and its mission, first as a board member and now as co-chair for the Legacy of Lives Campaign.

"Through Legacy of Lives, I believe that GTC's health sciences programs and new state-of-the-art Life Sciences Center will be integral to both economic development and to the development of thousands of qualified and trained medical professionals to meet the future healthcare needs across our entire Metro Atlanta region," adds McGean.

Ryan can speak with experience to the knowledge and training of Gwinnett Tech graduates."... (Gwinnett Tech does a) phenomenal job first selecting students, and they have phenomenal instructors to train them. So, when I interview a GTC graduate for a job, I don't have to worry about their technical skills or how they relate to our patients."
