Not once but twice did President Obama mention Forsyth Tech in his state of the union address. http://www.wxii12.com/video/26619249/detail.html
Kathy Proctor , a Forsyth Tech biotechnology student, has a story to tell as Obama learned when he visited the campus in December 2010. She had been laid off from her job in the furniture industry and seized the opportunity to reinvent herself " I saw it as a door opening not as a door closing" said Proctor.
Proctor was able to hear her story during the State of the Union address on Tuesday January 25th while seated with First Lady Michelle Obama.
