Moultrie Tech grads entering the workforce

Moultrie- With a growing demand for workers with certain technical skills, the value of a technical college education may be higher than ever.

Friday night, 150 Moultrie Technical College students got diplomas or certificates in various technical fields. The school's state of the art equipment gave students hands on experience to prepare them for high-demand jobs or more education.

"I plan to continue my education in medical assistance, working more in the medical field," says graduate Chrysonhya Clark.

"As our job environment has changed in Georgia and the nation, people with technical degrees will be in more demand than ever," says speaker Michael Vollmer.

Commissioner Vollmer says more than 90-percent of Georgia technical college graduates get jobs. In 2004, Moultrie Tech graduated 700 students. They hope to exceed that number this year.
