ATLANTA, GA. – The State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia (SCSC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Commissioner Mike Dudgeon as Chairman and Commissioner Lina Millan as Vice-Chairwoman.

Commissioner Dudgeon brings a wealth of experience and dedication to education and public service. He previously served on the Forsyth County Board of Education, as a State Representative in the Georgia House, and as Policy Director for Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan.

She is an Advisory Council Member for the Georgia OBGYN Society and holds board certifications and memberships in several medical associations. Her role as an Associate Professor at Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership and involvement in higher education advocacy in Georgia further exemplify her commitment to the community​​.
