Ricky Wakeman

Your community technology center values excellence, competence, diversity, integrity, accountability, innovation, listening & collaboration, service and leadership. Thank you to Ricky Wakeman for demonstrating the characteristics that we value. We are glad to have you as a teammate!


"Ricky Wakeman comes to work each day with a smile on his face. There has not been a time where I have passed
Ricky in the hall or in the middle of him working where he hasn't briefly stopped what he was doing to smile, wave, and say, "Hey there!" Every day, Ricky can be seen diligently working to make sure our facilities are neat and clean. Not only does he take very good care of the Ardmore Campus, he also travels to Marietta weekly to ensure the patrons of Love County walk into a very well-maintained and clean training, meeting, workshop, or seminar. SouthernTech is very fortunate to have Ricky on our team!"
