22, 2019 – State
School Superintendent Richard Woods has honored Representative Matthew Gambill
with the fourth Superintendent’s Impact Award.
Gambill was inaugurated last week as a member of the Georgia House of
Representatives. Previously, he led the Georgia
Association for Career and Technical Association (GACTE), where he was a
tireless advocate for Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education programs in
Gambill has been a great friend to Career, Technical, and Agricultural
Education in Georgia,” Superintendent Woods said. “He understands the impact of
these programs on our students’ futures and the health of our state’s
workforce, and can communicate their value as well as anyone I know. Georgia’s
CTAE program has seen great success in recent years – including an
all-time-high graduation rate of 96 percent for Career Pathway completers – and
Matthew has been an integral part of that work. We will miss him as a CTAE
leader, but look forward to working with him as a member of the General
Superintendent’s Impact Award recognizes Georgians who are not educators, but
who make a positive impact on the lives of Georgia’s schools and students.
Representative Dave Belton, former Representative Brooks Coleman, and Senator
Lindsey Tippins are previous recipients.
