TCHS Career Fest 2016
Former Navy Seal Lee Burton was the guest speaker at Toombs County High School’s Career Fest held on March 3. In the school’s auditorium, students in grades 9 -12 had the opportunity to hear about Mr. Burton’s experiences as a former Navy Seal and then visited booths set up by college representatives, military personnel, and business/industry employees. The purpose of the school’s annual career fair is to allow students to meet potential employers, and college and career representatives in an informal setting. It gives students a way to explore career opportunities within one location.
Numerous organizations were on hand for the career fair including Plant Hatch, Meadows Regional Medical Center, Dot Foods, Oxley Park and Rehab, Accordia Healthcare, Georgia Department of Labor, Hart Photography, Georgia Student Finance Commission, Primerica, Northland Cable, Vocational Rehabilitation, Georgia High School High Tech, GVRA/Roosevelt Warm Springs, Georgia Department of Public Safety, US Marines, US Army, US Coast Guard, At Work Personnel (Chicken of the Sea), MGA Aviation School, South Georgia State, College of Coastal Georgia, Armstrong State, Middle Georgia State University, Andrew College, Abraham Baldwin College, and Brewton Parker College. Southeastern Technical College brought several different program instructors including Cosmetology, Welding, CIS, Air Conditioning Technology, Early Childhood, and Wildlife Management and admissions officers to talk with students.
Event organizer Sabrina Campbell was pleased with the turnout. “Our community sent representatives to talk with our students about college and career opportunities. It is hard to keep the attention of teenagers, but Mr. Lee Burton did a fantastic job as our guest speaker sharing his experiences in the military. He stressed the importance of respect and honor, and encouraged the students to do well in school. We hope to continue inviting speakers like Mr. Burton to share life lessons with our students. Our career fair continues to grow and gets better each year.”
