Ogeechee Technical College has added three new members to the college's local Board of Directors. Mark Anderson and Yolanda Tremble, both of Statesboro, will represent Bulloch County, and Tammi Hall of Claxton will be an Evans County representative.
Hall is the executive director of the Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce. She is a longtime Evans County resident and graduate of Claxton High School. She attended Brewton-Parker College and is active in a number of organizations in Evans County, including Evans County C.A.R.E.S., American Red Cross, Pilot Club and Evergreen Baptist Church. Hall has volunteered with the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation's iGot (I Give to Ogeechee Tech) campaign for many years and has worked cooperatively with the college on projects centered in Evans County.
Tremble joins the Ogeechee Technical College local Board of Directors following a term on the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation Board of Trustees. In addition to serving as a Trustee, Tremble has volunteered in support of the iGot campaign for several years. She has a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Georgia Southern University, and is an Energy Service Representative with Georgia Power Company. Tremble is a graduate of the Leadership Bulloch Class of 2002, serves on the Bulloch County Hospital Authority, the Bulloch County Planning and Zoning Board, and is president of Citizens of Georgia Power. She is active in other civic, community-centered causes within Bulloch County.
The third new board member is Mark Anderson, who is co-owner of Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home and Bulloch Memorial Gardens in Statesboro. A graduate of Georgia Southern University, with a bachelor's in business administration, Anderson is also a graduate of Ogeechee Technical College with an Associate of Applied Technology in funeral service education, and in fact was in the first class to graduate from that program. Anderson is also a partner in SEGA Management, a company that owns and operates a hotel property, and is a partner in Bulloch Investors, a real estate investment company. He is on the Board of Directors of Farmers & Merchants Bank, a member of the Kiwanis Club of Statesboro, third vice chairman of the Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce and a member of several funeral service related professional organizations. Anderson is a regular volunteer and supporter of the college's iGot campaign.
Ogeechee Tech's local Board of Directors functions in an advisory capacity, as well as serving as ambassadors for the college. Representatives from Bulloch, Evans, and Screven counties, the three counties in the college's service delivery area, serve on the board.
"We are very happy to welcome three new board members who we know will be valuable additions," said Dr. Dawn Cartee, the president of Ogeechee Tech. "All three have volunteered their service to the college in the past, and they will give even greater service in their new roles."
