Community College Fair Provides Information For Potential Post-Secondary Students
Posted on 09/14/2018

Nearly 150 high school seniors and Robertson County adults were able to collect student recruitment information and ask questions from representatives of 55 colleges, vocational schools, and universities on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Center in Springfield. 

Local and regional institutions were well represented, with other schools traveling from as far away as North Carolina and East Tennessee.  Grand Canyon University of Phoenix, Arizona was the most distant school represented at the event.

A number of students seemed to show particular interest in the Tennessee College of Applied Technology opportunities available.  With the availability of two years of paid education through Tennessee Promise, more and more young people are opting for technical training in fields from electrical, to HVAC, to robotics, etc.  After completion of the two-year training requirements, a student can enter their job field with expectations of attractive initial salaries. 

Because of the attractiveness of TCAT courses, there is currently a waiting list of about 18 months, making it a wise choice for those who might  be interested in the program to go ahead and consider adding their name to that list now.
