SAVANNAH – Savannah Technical College staff members Sherry Darnstaedt, Accounts Receivable Manager and Tammy Pierson, Grants Accountant were recognized for completing the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Administrative Services Executive Academy recently.  Darnstaedt and Pierson were presented with a certificate of completion for demonstrating professional education and commitment to their profession by TCSG Commissioner Gretchen Corbin, and TCSG Assistant Commissioner Lisa Eason at the Vice Presidents of Administrative Services meeting in Macon.

The TCSG Administrative Services Executive Academy was established in 2013 to provide college business officers training in four 8-hour sessions that encompasses all the areas involved in the Administrative Services departments of the Technical Colleges.  Such training topics included financial accounting and budgeting management, PeopleSoft accounting software, human resources, various reports to state and national offices, insurance, and business office functions.  Only 20 individuals were recognized for completing the Executive Academy in 2015.

“This is very important internal training for our senior accounting staff members,” said TCSG Assistant Commissioner Lisa Eason.  “I would like to especially thank Savannah Technical College’s Vice President of Administrative Services Sue Turner for her role in helping coordinate this year’s training session.”

Savannah Technical College President Dr. Kathy S. Love also congratulated Sherry Darnstaedt and Tammy Pierson on their completion of the Administrative Services Executive Academy:  “Sherry and Tammy are tremendous assets to our College,” said Love.  “We are very fortunate to have them as part of our team.  And, it goes without saying, that I am delighted that our system office recognizes Ms. Turner and tapped her to help lead the training efforts for the Executive Academy participants.”
