ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- The Technical College of Georgia is expanding its global reach with new international contracts.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports that officials expect to sign a $3 million contract with the African nation of Kenya soon.
TCSG Commissioner Ron Jackson said recently that Athens Technical College and two other system colleges already are working with Saudi Arabia's King Faisal University under an $8 million contract.
He said other Saudi Arabian universities also are interested in contracting with the Georgia technical college system.
Under the existing contract with King Faisal University, administrators and teachers at Athens Tech and two other system colleges are setting up a new school, King Faisal University Community College, in Saudi Arabia.
Jackson said Kenyan officials aren't asking for a new school, but help in setting up a curriculum for technical colleges.
