CCPLC holds career fair

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Dougherty County students got a look at their possible futures on Thursday.

The College and Career Performance Learning Center hosted a career fair.

Students spoke with lawyers, police officers, hair stylists and even folks from WALB as part of American Education Week.

Students took part in special events all week to get them thinking about their futures.

Earlier this week students toured Albany State University and learned about the college application process.

"We're trying to make sure that they are aware that these are the resources that are needed to help you in education, to help you get what you need, and these are some of the end points," academic coordinator Gloria Baker said.  "What's at the end of the tunnel is what we want them to see."

Right now 66 students attend the college and career performance learning center from all over the school system.

That number changes each semester.
