ATC Employees Recognized During SCTEA Conference

(March 16, 2017, Aiken, SC)— Three Aiken Technical College (ATC) employees were recently recognized during the annual South Carolina Technical Education Association (SCTEA) conference held in Myrtle Beach.

Crystal Ratliff, the Academic Success Center Manager at ATC, was recognized as the SCTEA Staff Member of the Year for ATC. She manages the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence and the Academic Success Center. She is also involved with the College’s transitional studies program.

Ratliff currently serves as the secretary for the South Carolina Technical College System’s Tutoring Peer Group and is involved in various community efforts.

Athena Freeman was recognized as the SCTEA Administrator of the Year for ATC. Freeman, the Operations Manager for the Training & Business Development Department, also received the award in 2011.
