Cornucopia of Technical Colleges

The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) signed on as a sponsor of the Georgia High School Counselor Association’s (GSCA) annual meeting November 8-10 at the Jekyll Island Convention Center.

The purpose of the event was to show Georgia high school counselors the many career opportunities that are available to students, expose 900 – 1,000 Georgia high school counselors to TCSG colleges, career opportunities, programs like Dual Enrollment and apprenticeships, and financial aid options like the HOPE Career Grant, and equip HS counselors with contacts, messages and materials they need to understand and promote TCSG as an educational option.

Each technical college was asked to highlight one program from their college and showcase the diversity of technical education in core fields like electrical, culinary, business and health sciences as well as innovative, unique programs such as cybersecurity, robotics, game design, photography, historic preservation, film, etc. Augusta Technical College was asked to showcase our Nuclear Engineering Technology program.

Augusta Tech’s very on High School Coordinator, Jan Blackburn, and Nuclear Engineering Technology instructor, Abdulla Kendoush, attended the event, including the Expo: “Cornucopia of Technical Colleges.” No surprise, Augusta Technical College won the “Best Table Award”.

Great job Jan and Dr. Kendoush!
