MOULTRIE — Earl Rice of Doerun has been chosen to represent Moultrie Technical College at the EAGLE Leadership Institute Feb. 21 and 22. The Leadership Institute recognizes and honors those students who have demonstrated superior achievement in adult literacy classes and programs.

The Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education (DTAE), through its Office of Adult Literacy, sponsors the annual Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) Leadership Institute.

Even though Rice is the only member of his family to receive a GED diploma, he says his educational goals extend much further. He plans to attend college and receive a degree in the near future, because he has learned that his education is not limited and neither is his potential.

“I have always wanted to get my GED but could not find the time, because I had to work,” Rice said. “Then circumstances arose that made time available for me to take the classes I needed to receive my GED (through Moultrie Technical College).”

Rice, a student at Moultrie Tech’s Sumner campus in Worth County, has been married to wife Dawn for 17 years, and the couple has three children. He enjoys golfing and volunteering at Sylvester Primary School and the Sylvester Recreation Department.

EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation that recognizes and rewards excellence among students enrolled in the adult literacy programs. This student recognition program is designed to create greater awareness of educational opportunities that are available in local communities across the state and to foster greater involvement in lifelong learning pursuits.
