Hundreds of Elementary and Middle School Students Attend Mini Program Fair at OFTC

Over 800 local elementary and middle school students attended a mini-program fair held at Oconee Fall Line Technical College where they were introduced to potential career opportunities like Criminal Justice, Cosmetology, Emergency Medical Services, Commercial Truck Driving and others, Thursday, February 17.

The students went from one program’s station to the next where they listened to instructors and current students talk of the skills learned in the program, interacted with program specific demonstrations, and learned of future employment opportunities available with an education in the particular program area.

Attending schools were: Bleckley Middle School, Dublin Middle School, East Laurens Middle School and Hillcrest Elementary.
