ATLANTA — Technical College System of Georgia Commissioner Ron Jackson has announced the creation of a search committee that will assist him in the process of selecting the next president of Gwinnett Technical College (GTC).

Jackson’s choice will replace President Sharon Bartels, who retired on May 1.

The search committee will be chaired by Wendell Dallas, the vice president for operations at Atlanta Gas Light and Chattanooga Gas and chairman of the GTC Board of Directors.

In the coming weeks, committee members will conduct interviews with applicants who respond to a national announcement for the position.

Their job will be to narrow the applicants down to three candidates and then provide Jackson with those names.

The entire process to select the next president of GTC is expected to take several weeks.

David H. Welden, the college’s executive vice president for finance and administration, is serving as the interim president until a new president is named.
