High School High Tech students from Franklin and Hart County schools toured McLane Trucking and Athens Technical College in Athens, Georgia. The students were given a tour of McLane Trucking and shown all aspects of the business. The students were given a lot of information about careers at this site and qualifications for these careers. The students were very engaged and asked a lot of good questions about job opportunities at this location. The students then toured Athens Technical College where they were given a presentation on admissions and financial aid. They were then given a tour of the campus and all the areas of study that are available at this campus. The students have very positive comments about both of these tours.
