ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some students at Albany Tech reach an important milestone.

Nearly 400 students took part in Albany Technical College's fall commencement exercises.
More than 2200 students actually earned degrees or technical certificates this semester.
Jerri Jarrell already has a job lined up as a medical assistant at Phoebe Orthopedic.

"I had a job before I got done with my externship with Phoebe,” said Jerri Jarrell, Graduate. “About a couple of weeks in they asked to go ahead and apply to the position so I had a job before I even got finished with school.”
