Enterprise High School is leading the way in career and technical education in the state, and on Dec. 9 students were exposed to several technical institutions during a two-year college and career fair.
“We had a (standard) college and career fair about a month ago, but felt we really wanted and needed to target students with an interest in the two-year college system,” said EHS principal Matt Rodgers. “There’s so many career and technical opportunities out there, and we felt like our student hadn’t been exposed to those from a college standpoint.”
Rodgers said Enterprise is lucky to have several institutions within a short driving distance, such as Enterprise State Community College, Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia and Wallace Community College in Dothan.
Currently, 750 students are taking career and technical courses at Enterprise High School, and each class visited the college and career fair.
Each two-year institution had informational booths available, but also gave a brief presentation on their organization as a whole in the Performing Arts Center.
