Bill Barton Joins Ogeechee Tech as Dean

Rebecca WilliamsOriginally from Lexington, North Carolina, Bill Barton lived in the Atlanta area for the past 20 years before moving south to become Ogeechee Technical College’s newest Dean for Academic Affairs. With a professional history dominated by corporate human resources and education, Bill brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his new position. He spent the past seven years with the Technical College System of Georgia as an instructor/program chair, dean, and most recently serving as campus director for Athens Tech. 

Bill’s education includes a Bachelor of Arts from Lenoir Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina, a Master of Arts in Personnel Administration in Higher Education at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and doctoral studies in Education at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Bill’s wife, Karen, is a native of Chicago and has a degree in The History of Art and Architecture from the University of Chicago, and is an accomplished gourmet cook. Bill says that he and Karen enjoy cooking, shopping for antiques, boating, riding their bikes, and playing with their dog, Dingo. The couple has two adult children and four grandchildren.  Bill says, “I used to be a competitive pistol shooter and ran ultra marathons, but now I like to play golf and fish.” He also says that being so close to the coast and the Savannah area is great for people who love cooking, antiques, boating, and other outdoor activities. Please welcome Bill Barton to Ogeechee Tech!
