27 Dec Jon Cartu Implies: Agreement with Piedmont College brings new education
Students who graduate with an associate’s degree in early childhood care and education from Lanier Technical College can now transfer their college credits toward earning a bachelor’s in early childhood education at Piedmont College.
This was made possible through an agreement signed by the leadership of Lanier Tech and Piedmont College on Dec. 18, 2019.
“We hope this is the first of many articulation agreements we will sign with Piedmont College,” Ray Perren, Lanier Tech’s president, said in a press release.
Piedmont College has offered upper-level courses in early elementary education for years, and aims to expand its opportunities to more individuals.
“Piedmont College is very excited to partner with Lanier Tech to provide students a viable path to completing a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education, so they can fulfill their dreams of becoming elementary school teachers,” Dan Silber, Piedmont College’s vice president of academic affairs, said in a press release. “We look forward to welcoming Lanier Tech graduates at Piedmont and to pursuing articulation agreements with Lanier Tech in other program areas in the near future.”
