College & Career Fest for Middle Georgia students
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- Students from across Middle Georgia were given the opportunity to start thinking about their futures.
The 100 Hundred Black Men of Middle Georgia hosted its Annual College and Career Fest this week at the Wilson Convention Center at the Macon Centreplex . More than 3,000 high school students got the opportunity to meet with a variety of colleges, universities, businesses and branches of the military throughout Georgia.
The two-day event is put on to give students early access to valuable information. Chair person of the event, Rene Neville hopes that students get the information and options they need after graduating high school.
“Kids don’t know what they don’t know. This is an opportunity to learn what career paths and what career options are available to them,” Neville said. “And learn what the admission requirements are.”
This year, 100 Black Men teamed up with the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce to host a job fair for adults in the community as well. They have been hosting these fests since 1997.
