Macon Native Dr. Ivan Allen Named Interim President of CGTC

On June 1, Central Georgia Technical College will have a new interim president: Macon native Dr. Ivan Allen. Since 2005, the Mount de Sales graduate has been president of Middle Georgia Technical College in Warner Robins where Allen began his career in 1997 as an instructor. In 2010, MGTC was identified by Community College Week Magazine as the sixth fastest-growing two-year college in the nation with enrollments between 2,500 and 4,999 students.

This is Allen's second role as interim president, having led Southern Crescent Technical College in Griffin for six months in 2010. He replaces current CGTC President Mike Moye, who is retiring May 31 after spending 27 years in the Technical College System of Georgia, including 18 years as president over three TCSG colleges.

According to a Tuesday morning press release, the timeline for Moye's permanent replacement is still to be determined.

Jeff Scruggs, MGTC vice president for economic development and institutional support services, will assume the role of acting president during Allen's absence.
