Valdosta Tech to start Career Academy

September 17, 2007

Valdosta - Valdosta Technical College will start a program they hope will decrease the drop out rate and increase their own enrollment.

Career Academy will identify high school students at risk of not graduating or those not interested in college.

It will work to keep them in school and teach them them career and technical skills they would need to get a competitive, higher paying job.  "Everyone one of our programs has a link to the needed career area that are fairly well paying jobs in the community," says Dr. Robert Abene, President of Valdosta Technical College.

They hope to begin the program as soon as possible and reach out to all the high schools in their seven-county area.
