Ogeechee Tech Adds New Employees

Cheryl Ard
Cheryl Ard

Cheryl Ard has joined the faculty of Ogeechee Technical College as an instructor in the Practical Nursing program.  A resident of Statesboro for about four years, Cheryl previously taught nursing at Central Georgia Technical College in Macon for three years and prior to that taught nursing in South Carolina for seven years.  Cheryl is a graduate of first Bachelor of Science in Nursing class at Georgia College & State University—and as she says, being in the first class let’s us know it was a LONG time ago! 

Cheryl is the mother of three children, ages 23, 13, and 8.  She explains that her children are spaced out so that no two will be in college at the same time—a wise plan!  Welcome Cheryl Ard to Ogeechee Tech.


A new face at Ogeechee Technical College is Sheila Jenkins, who was recently hired as Administrative Assistant for Academic Affairs, working with Dean John Groover.  Sheila comes to OTC after having worked as an Administrative Assistant for two and a half years with William Ryan Electrical Company in Bluffton, South Carolina.  She is not unfamiliar with the Technical College System of Georgia, however, because she worked for over four years as a part-time evening instructor for Southeastern Technical College in Vidalia.

Sheila’s educational background includes an AAS in Information Technology from East Georgia College/Southeastern Tech, an AA in Business Education from East Georgia College, and a BSED from Georgia Southern University in Business Education.

Sheila has three daughters, five grandchildren, and two great-grand children.  Her hobbies include creating mosaics using tiny beads and creating various crafts.  She also likes to prepare home jellies and preserves.  Welcome, Sheila, to Ogeechee Technical College!


Nicole Pallas
Nicole Pallas

Nicole Pallas is a recent addition to the Ogeechee Technical College staff and serves as Administrative Assistant in Academic Affairs.  Nicole works with Dr. Gayle Tremble in the Health Science area.  A recent transplant to Statesboro from Ohio, Nicole is a graduate of the University of Akron where she received a Bachelors degree in Business and Organizational Communications.  After working as an Administrative Assistant at the University of Akron for three years Nicole tried her hand in retail working for Dillard’s and Cingular Wireless—where, she says, she enjoyed the discounts but not the long hours!

Nicole's fiancÚ, Ben, works for Timken in Sylvania and moved there after a promotion, prompting Nicole's move to the area. All of her family lives in Cleveland, Ohio, with the exception of a brother who is a student at Florida State University. While she has no children, Nicole does have a yellow lab, Tybee, who keeps her very busy. Her hobbies include golfing, traveling, and interior decorating. The one thing Nicole misses about living 'up north' is the snow. Welcome Nicole Pallas to Ogeechee Tech!
