During his term as State Supervisor, he was nationally recognized for his work in vocational education. The Diversified Cooperative Training (DCT) Program was greatly expanded, and he was instrumental in the development of the Area Vocational-Technical School System and the Area Vocational High School System. Mr. Hick’s contribution to the state’s education system was widely appreciated by the political powers in Georgia as many letters in his correspondence attest.
