As we draw closer to our 60th anniversary celebrations, it is our honor to reach out to you on behalf of the Augusta Technical College Anniversary Committee to announce the inaugural inductees to the Den of Distinction.

The Den of Distinction celebrates a select group of alumni within Cougar Nation who have fulfilled the promise of technical education. Each inductee has an innovative spirit and embodies Augusta Technical College's vision and values. The stories of these alumni are filled with diverse perspectives and experiences that are remarkable, triumphant, and trailblazing. You will be able to learn more about our 2021 inductees through features on our college website.
