Bedingfield Named OFTC’s 2018 EAGLE Delegate

Cristy Bedingfield of Dublin, Ga., was recently named Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) 2018 Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education (EAGLE) winner.

The EAGLE Program celebrates adult learners in pursuit of excellence and honors students who demonstrate exceptional achievement in statewide adult education classes. Each year, Adult education teachers in public, private and grantee agencies nominate students at the local program level to participate in the EAGLE recognition program at the state level; nominees are chosen based on character, attitude, attendance, leadership and community involvement and activities. Nominees are required to give a written speech in front of a panel of judges and sit through an interview process.

Bedingfield was nominated by OFTC Adult Education instructor Cecila Adamson and is currently working on obtaining her General Education Diploma at OFTC’s South Campus in Dublin. She will attend the annual EAGLE Leadership Institute in March and will compete against other EAGLE delegates from various technical colleges within the state.

Other EAGLE candidates were: Lenora Cason of Helena, nominated by instructor Emily Lloyd; Rebecca Horning of Dublin, nominated by instructor Cecila Adamson; Amber Manning of Dublin, runner up, nominated by instructor Nathan Morris; and Devon Roby of Chauncey, nominated by instructor Zachary Woodard.
