The Wiregrass Board of Directors serves both in a community advisory capacity and in a limited capacity, performing certain oversight responsibilities as designated by state board. The local board is comprised of members from the business and industrial communities from the eleven-county service area of Wiregrass. Board members are selected because of their experience, ability, and dedication, to deal with issues that relate to the mission of occupational education and are without contractual, employment, or personal financial investment in the school.

Outgoing board member Terri Lupo of Valdosta shared, “This is a fantastic team. It has been a great time serving.” Outgoing board member Guy Daughtrey thanked the administrative staff for being part of changing people’s lives at Wiregrass.
