Office of the President


President's Letter


It is an honor and pleasure to serve as the new president of Gordon State College. Since assuming the presidency June 1, my days have been filled with endless opportunities to meet individuals on campus and in the community. I have remained impressed by each person who continues to make the college a better place. The contributions are unique and special. Each person brings something different to our college. With the help of each person, Gordon State College will continue to be a place where students flourish.

It is my goal in my first year to gather information that will help guide Gordon State through this transition and change in leadership. As this transition takes place, I am confident we will remain relevant to our students, community, and the 14 county region we serve. It takes a team to make the end goal a reality, and I am confident we have the right individuals to achieve that goal.

This upcoming year will be filled with excitement and new beginnings. At the same time, we will all be feeling a certain level of anxiety until the journey becomes familiar. I want you to know that we are all included in this process of moving forward. I am confident Gordon State College will continue to advance and grow with the help of each colleague, friend, and community member. The journey will be difficult and it will take a great deal of commitment and energy. However, together, as a Highlander family, we will succeed.

Highlanders Forward,

Dr. Kirk A. Nooks
