Sen. Isakson has been involved in Georgia politics for 35 years – serving 17 years as a member of the Georgia General Assembly in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. In a special election in 1999, he succeeded House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Georgia) for his congressional seat, and five years later was elected to the U.S. Senate, following the retirement of U.S. Sen. Zell Miller.

Winter Commencement 2009 will mark the college’s fourth graduation ceremony since its doors opened in 2006. The college was accredited in June by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Following the December commencement, GGC will boast more than 125 graduates.
