Albany - High school students got a look at possible future careers today at Albany Technical College. Different programs were on display for about 200 students from Lee, Terrell and Mitchell Counties.

On Saturday, the general public can check out the programs during family and friends day and see if a technical education is the right path for them.

Kathryn McPhail said, "Not only does an event like this bring in people who are actively looking at technical education, it also brings in their families and so sometimes the people who aren't even sure they want to go to technical college see our events at a program like this and say, 'hey, that is something for me, we can afford it and we can put this into our work schedule and better ourselves.'"

Last year, about 2000 visitors attended the Family and Friends event. You can stop by Albany Tech from 10AM to 1PM Saturday to find out information on different programs offered. There will be live radio remotes, a car and bike show, free food, and games.

A family and friends day will be held next Saturday at Albany Tech's Randolph County Learning Center.
