GHC Foundation celebrates success at Welcome Back Breakfast

On Jan. 26 at 9 a.m., the GHC Foundation launched the new academic year with a ‘Welcome Back Breakfast’ hosted at the Cartersville Student Center.

Over 115 faculty and staff gathered from across all five campuses.

“The goal was to bring everyone together to kick off a new year at GHC,” Assistant to the President for External Relations, Nicholas Godfrey said.

The breakfast was an opportunity for socializing and re-connection and as a platform for discussing future aspirations.

President Mike Hobbs described the morning as ‘an opportune moment to unite, celebrate accomplishments and set the stage for another successful year at GHC for our students, faculty and staff.’

Among those accomplishments was an impressive surge in enrollment.

“Boasting over 300 additional admission applications for Fall 2024 compared to last year, the event served as a moment to reflect on our recent achievements and look forward to another year of growth and excellence,” Hobbs said.

The breakfast included traditional staples such as eggs, biscuits, bacon, sausage, juice, and refreshing lemon water.

Godfrey envisions the event becoming a ‘mainstay’ in January, as he characterizes it as fostering ‘fellowship and camaraderie.’

Additionally, according to Godfrey, a similar upcoming event, the ‘Charger Kick Off,’ is scheduled for August.

Reflecting on these events, Godfrey stated, ‘Events like this, aimed at bringing everyone together, provide a great opportunity to see individuals from all our locations and prepare for a new semester of assisting our students in succeeding at Georgia Highlands College.’
