Greene County Career Center is not just moving into a new decade, but also transitioning into a new facility in 2020. While keeping with the mission of building the local workforce, the school will also move forward with a new logo. Designed by Rick Mack, a GCCC teacher and partner in Mack and Morris Entertainment, the logo features bold blue colors while still incorporating the recognizable “G” of years past. It replaces a green logo that dates back to the late 1990’s. “With an incredible new facility provided by our voters, we felt it was time to freshen up our branding as well,” said Greene County Career Center Superintendent David Deskins. “We are very pleased with the final product and believe it shows forward movement forward as we head into the next era. We have worked hard to continually improve the standard of excellence by our teaching staff and wanted the new logo to reflect that forward seeking energy.”
