New Tradition Born at Commencement
The macette bears the college’s core values: Excellence, Integrity, Customer Service, Professionalism, Respect, Teamwork, Diversity and Inclusion. It represents a half-century of academic excellence at ATC.
Nyrshea Williams, a health information management technology graduate, was chosen as the student designee, the STAR student, to carry the macette. STAR is an acronym for Scholarship, Talent, and Recognition, listing the characteristics of the top Atlanta Technical College graduate.
In carrying the macette, Williams represented the members of the 2017 graduating class and the significance of their matriculation through Atlanta Technical College.
