Highlands says farewell to three vice presidents

Three vice presidents will mark February 2021 as their final days at Georgia Highlands College before retiring. Jeff Patty, Gini Siler and Mary Transue will be leaving after a combined service of 47 years at GHC.

Jeff Patty, Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, first started his career at GHC in 1990 and has been operating in the Information Technology department during his 30 years of employment. Patty has personally seen the college grow through the age of the internet, and has been thankful of the team that the IT department has cultivated.

Ginni Siler, Vice President for Human Resources and Chief Human Resource Officer, has been servicing the college since 2009 and has worked to maintain the efficiency of the GHC Human Resources’ technology.

Mary Transue, Senior Vice President for Advancement and Enrollment Management and the Executive Director of the GHC Foundation Inc., has been working and advocating for GHC and its students’ success since 2014. Transue has ensured the availability of scholarships and programs for GHC students.

President Don Green ended a congratulatory message by saying, “Enough cannot truly be said about how much each of these individuals have accomplished for our college. I’ll miss their expertise, guidance, leadership and above all else, their absolute commitment to our students, faculty, staff and college community.”
