JAMESTOWN, N.C. (June 9, 2022) – David Pittman, Ed.D., who has 28 years of experience in higher education administration, has been named campus dean of Guilford Technical Community College's Greensboro, High Point and Aviation campuses.

"I have enjoyed learning more about the High Point, Aviation, and Greensboro campuses along with getting to know my new team. I look forward to building a strong collaborative network of colleagues to meet the diverse needs of our student body."
