Greg Mitchell Appointed to Horry County Higher Education Commission
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud to announce that Greg Mitchell, retired HGTC Vice President for Workforce Development and Continuing Education, has been appointed by South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster to the Horry County Higher Education Commission (HCHEC).
“HGTC is proud to have a colleague and ambassador for the college serving as a member of the Horry County Higher Education Commission. To my knowledge, Greg is the first HGTC employee to have a seat on the commission, and I know he will represent us well,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President.
Although Greg officially retired in March this year, he continues to dedicate his time to HGTC as a community relations liaison. In this new role, he works with the HGTC Executive Leadership Team to develop and implement initiatives that 1) increase HGTC visibility, and 2) connect people in the communities HGTC serves in Horry and Georgetown Counties. He is primarily responsible for creating and cultivating new relationships with businesses, individuals, and organizations as well as nurturing prior relationships with collaborative partnerships, including his service on the Georgetown Economic Development Alliance.
The HCHEC was formed in 1959 by the South Carolina General Assembly to oversee the use of county tax millage for Coastal Carolina University. Today, there are 16 members appointed by the Governor of South Carolina and recommended by the Horry County Legislative Delegation to represent Horry County.
