Albany Tech shares 'real world opportunities' to parishioners


Clergy members from various denominations are learning what Albany Technical College can offer their parishioners.

The college held its 10th annual faith-based luncheon Thursday to teach pastors about programs financial aid options and employment opportunities available to graduates.

The goal is for ministers to pass along the information to their church members.

"We have an array of programs that will allow the students to be able to lay a great foundation in their lives and then be able to go to work," said Assistant Director of Admissions Barbara Brown. "They say that there are no jobs, but there are jobs. But they [also] need the skill training and we offer that here at Albany Technical College."

"Real World Opportunities" was this year's theme, and Albany Tech President Dr. Anthony Parker was the keynote speaker.
