DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Local industries are playing an important part in the education of Dougherty County students.
Professionals in Dougherty County met with school leaders Wednesday at Albany High School to discuss ways they can help students get a jump start on future careers.
The high school has a number of pathways students can explore.
Those pathways range from business and technology, to healthcare and law and justice.
During Wednesday's meeting, partners talked about ways they can get involved in the students learning.
"We depend upon them to help us improve our program, make our programs up to date and current with industry standards," said Albany High School organizer Carene Talley.
Over the next few months, students will hear from police officers, doctors and other professionals about their jobs and how they got to where they are today.
The group meets twice every year.
