December 27-- Members from Southeastern Technical College's (STC) Dental Hygiene Program showcased their program at the Georgia School Counselor Association's Annual Conference at Jekyll Island.
On the second day of the conference, the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) sponsored a Manufacturing Expo and Technical College Cornucopia. During this time, technical colleges from across the state were able to set up exhibits and promote what some of their top programs have to offer. These programs ranged from Welding and Timber Harvesting to Bioscience and Nuclear Engineering.
The Dental Hygiene Program was selected by the TCSG to showcase for STC. Four STC staff members, including Dental Hygiene Program Director, Dr. Jennifer Gramiak, and three students, Callie Johnson, Abby Lynn, and Landon Stuckey represented STC at the Expo.
"This event provided a unique opportunity for school counselors to interact directly with students enrolled in the dental hygiene program," said Gramiak. "The students answered questions about program admission requirements and discussed reasons for choosing a career in dental hygiene. Based on the positive response from the school counselors, the students did an amazing job promoting technical education."
The Georgia School Counselor Association (GSCA) is a non-profit association made up of counselors, guidance directors, and other administrators in Georgia school systems. Over 1,000 counselors were at this year's conference.
