High school students sign to NGTC
North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) recently celebrated an inaugural signing day for high school students committing to learn technical education skills by enrolling at NGTC beginning fall semester 2019.
NGTC hosted the signing day at all three campus locations in Clarkesville, Toccoa and Blairsville, as well as Rabun County High School to make it convenient for high school seniors to attend after school.
Seniors who applied to NGTC beginning fall 2019 were invited to ink their intentions of studying a technical trade skill and training to enter the workforce within two years or less, depending on their program of choice.
“We believe students choosing to enter the career and technical education fields should be applauded,” said NGTC president Dr. Mark Ivester.
“They have decided that career training and technical skill certifications can provide a faster track to successful employment, and we are prepared and excited to assist them to achieve their future career goals,” Ivester said.
“We were excited to host this type of event to spotlight our future students,” said NGTC vice president of community and college relations Amy Hulsey.
“We have received so much positive feedback from parents, counselors, school administrators, and of course, the students, who agree that technical education students should be recognized among our community leaders,” Hulsey said.
“We are already planning for next year’s Signing Days and hoping that the word will spread to encourage more students to choose technical education early in their decision process,” she said.
