Area juniors and seniors were given the opportunity to experience a variety of careers at the Wallace Community College (WCC) 2013 Girls’ Youth Summit. The annual event, which was held Friday, February 1, drew over 350 girls from local high schools.
Sandra Thomas, a computer science instructor at Troy University, gave a motivational keynote speech that encouraged the audience to begin exploring careers earlier rather than later.
Displays representing career/technical and health science programs were set up for attendees in Cherry Hall. Students dusted for fingerprints, interacted with nursing and respiratory simulators, and viewed robotic displays at the interactive exhibits. Faculty and current students talked about their programs and explained course requirements and employment options.
