Chattahoochee Technical College was founded in 1963, and is named for the Chattahoochee River.

The Blue Heron was the official mascot of Chattahoochee Technical College, created in 2004 by marketing management student Kevin M. Moss (2005 alumnus), who later went on to serve as secretary/treasurer of CTC's student government (2004–2005) and student-body president (2007–2008) of nearby Southern Polytechnic State University's student government. The Golden Eagle is the new mascot of the combined school.

Students of the school's video production major produce some of the programming seen on Cobb edTV, the local Educational-access television channel seen on Comcast cable TV (or Charter Cable in Smyrna).

Famous quotes containing the words facts and/or figures:

    Science is facts. Just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts. But a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
    Jules Henri Poincare (1854–1912)

    I will stand on, and continue to use, the figures I have used, because I believe they are correct. Now, I’m not going to deny that you don’t now and then slip up on something; no one bats a thousand.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
