In spring of 2012, the Public Policy Graduate Student Association (PPGSA) elected Randy Gibbs as the new PPGSA President.
Randy G. Gibbs, a first year MS student in Georgia Tech’s Public Policy program, recently separated from active duty service in the US Air Force. In his new role as an Area Liaison Officer in the Air Force Reserves, Randy addressed 22 young men and women who received a Service Academy Nomination from Congressman David Scott (13th Congressional District). In addition to Congressman Scott and the families of the students, several City Mayors, County Commissioners, Superintendents of Education, Principals, JROTC Commanders, and other community leaders were in attendance. Randy chose to study Public Policy at Tech as a means to continue his leadership development in Atlanta, this time from a civilian perspective, as he transitions out of the military.
