|Millennium Technology Pointe
(MTP) is a 214 acre regional development of the Joint Development Authority of Ben Hill and Irwin Counties, comprised of the two counties and the cities of Fitzgerald
MTP solves the location dilemma facing many high-tech companies. To enhance the offerings the location offers, the JDA joined with Wiregrass Georgia Technical College (WGTC), its satellite campuses, and the Ben Hill and Irwin School systems to form a unique consortium of technology education and technology job opportunities. MTP and WGTC are natural corollaries to the Yamacraw initiative in Southeast Georgia. Together they supply a pool of engineers and technicians to enable technology industry to operate in rural South Georgia.
In addition to the current partnerships, three additional K-12 systems have expressed interest in joining forces. These school systems have realigned their curricula so their students can be prepared for entrance into the unique technology programs at East Central Technical College.
Without a doubt, Millennium Technology Pointe promises to be a long term enhancement to both the communities and the organizations housed within the park. By building solid relationships that enhance the well-being of all, success rewards the whole.
