#1348 | March 19, 2013
SAVANNAH – Savannah Technical College has selected Brent Stubbs as its Dean of Adult Education. In this role, Stubbs is responsible for establishing adult education programs for individuals and employers, promoting the program to public and private organizations and overseeing administration for assessment and placement test for all Adult Education students.
Prior to joining Savannah Tech, Stubbs managed the GED ® and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes for Lake Technical Center located in Eustis, Fla., which serves residents of Lake County. As an Adult Education leader for the county, he helped expand online programs, launched the complete re-branding of adult education through “GED… It’s just a Beginning!” and worked as the chairman of the school’s Technology Committee, and spear-headed the complete re-design of the adult education program to emphasize transition to post-secondary and employment, which he plans to do at Savannah Tech. His expanded online program increased participation from 50 students to more than 200. Stubbs holds a MBA from Brenau University with an emphasis in leadership.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a person with a high school or GED ® credential earns $10,000 more per year than a non-high school graduate. The income level increases substantially more for those who go on to complete a college certificate, diploma or degree program. There are more than one million Georgians who are 25 years of age or older and do not have a high school education or GED diploma. Savannah Tech’s Adult Education Program serves those who need to improve their basic literacy and math skills, improve their oral and written English, practice for the GED ® test to attain a high school equivalence degree, and prepare for college. Instructors also help students with science and social studies test preparation for GED ® testing.
