The original building consisted of 38,000 square feet and offered techni- cal training in 7 occupational areas. In January of 1967, Troup Tech awarded 31 diplomas. The institution was renamed West Georgia Technical Institute in 1987 as it become a state institu- tion operating under the gover- nance of the State Board of Post- secondary Vocational Education. From a humble beginning in one building, West Georgia Tech has expanded to a 6 building, beautiful 88-acre comprehensive campus in the heart of LaGrange's industrial communi- ty. Through the assistance of local and state investments in the insti- tution since 1991, 303 Fort Drive has taken a new look. Our attrac- tive, modern facilities have dou- bled in size; and newly con- structed buildings house a library, conference center, child development center;classrooms, technical laboratories, and facul- ty offices. The entire campus has undergone renovation including the installation of a fiber optic backbone to ensure aces to state- of-the-art information technolo- gy. Our changes reflect dramat- ic advancement and our commit- ment to economic development through preparing people for the workforce. Rapid facility expansion has also been accompanied by rapid growth in the number of certifi- cate, diploma, and Associate Degree Programs; non-credit training opportunities and Adult Basic Education training oppor- tunities. Enrollment has almost doubled in the past five years, and quarterly enrollments con- tinue to climb. More than 10,000 students annually take advantage of the convenient, low-cost, high quality at West Georgia Tech. Currently students may enroll in over 75 options of credit study and numerous professional development and non-credit training seminars. In addition, a number of our credit courses are available on-line, and the number continues to grow each quarter. Quick Start services and cus- tomized business and industry training are also offered to new and existing employers through- out the region, and adult literacy services are provided in Harris, Heard, Meriwether, and Troup counties to make more and more residents employable. As a result of the several new initiatives included in Governor Barnes' A Plus Education Reform Act of 2000 (H.B. 1187), West Georgia Tech will take on an even more significant role in the future. House Bill 1187 will assure that future funds will increase as student enrollments increase, thus allowing us to bet- ter meet growing student demands. In addition, changes in the HOPE (;rant and Scholarship program will allow even greater access to credit programs for stu- dents. More importantly, however, House Bill 1187 allows West Georgia Tech to change our name from "Technical Institute" to "Technical College." For West Georgia Tech, this will be one of the most significant milestones in our journey of achievements toward a vision of excellence. This change in name does not mean that West Georgia Tech has or will change its mission. Our business has always been to pre- pare people for jobs, and that will continue to be our mission. Today's workforce requires tech- of the workplace. As college, West Geor continue to maintain our technical and cation in order to meet the ing needs of business and try.
