Ogeechee Tech Unveils New E-Newsletter

Ogeechee Technical College has initiated a daily email newsletter to help maintain a better informed faculty and staff at the college.  The Ogeechee Splash made its debut on April 2, 2007 on the first day of Spring quarter.  “What better time to introduce something new to our campus?” asked Executive Director of Public Relations, Barry Turner.  “Spring is for new beginnings and The Ogeechee Splash is definitely something new for our campus,” he further commented.  The web-based publication combines items of interest in the form of articles and pictures which can be accessed in their entirety on the OTC website.  In addition, other vital information such as a daily travel and leave report, administrator in charge, evening IT personnel on call, and other useful bits of information that might make a faculty or staff member better informed are included.

Webmaster Brandy Taylor is the point person for composing the daily newsletter and receives contributions of information through a “Daily Report” email address on the college’s web-mail system.  “As we have more information provided, The Splash is likely to grow in size,” commented Taylor.  “We want it to be a useful tool for employees here at the college,” she further stated.  Turner and Taylor collaborate on the daily content of the newsletter, with Turner being primarily responsible for the editorial content, while Taylor provides the technical expertise needed to produce The Splash daily.

OTC president, Dr. Dawn Cartee expressed her excitement over the new e-newsletter in saying, “What a great addition to our campus!”  “I predict that The Ogeechee Splash will become one of the first things our faculty and staff members look at each day, to see what is going on at the college,” Dr. Cartee further stated.  “I suspect, as with any new venture, that this web publication will be a work in progress,” commented Barry Turner.  “We want to be responsive to the needs and desires of the faculty and staff in considering the content of this publication,” Turner further stated.  A version of The Splash which will primarily include articles and pictures will also begin distribution to community members whose email addresses are being gathered.  “We want our community to also be aware of all the happenings at OTC,” Dr. Cartee explained.  “The distribution of The Splash to community members will be a great step in assuring that everyone in our service area knows about the great things that are happening at OTC,” concluded Dr. Cartee.
