Students learn about military careers

October 20, 2006

Albany - - Students at a non-traditional school learn more about the men and women who serve our country and why they do it.

Today was Armed Forces Recruitment Day at the South Georgia Regional Achievement Center. Recruiters from the army, navy, air force, and marines spoke to students in the Performance Learning Program - that's a group of students who fall behind in their academic level and attend the school to catch up. 

"Our children was asking questions, they were asking questions and they were asking me because I was in the military and I didn't want to give them my view because I would've only given them one view. So I wanted them to have to an even view of the military services so they can make an even choice," says teacher Elenora Engram.

Recruiters spoke about their experiences fighting in Iraq. South Georgia Regional houses several academic programs for students in one building.
