Opportunity Showcase in Hickory

Matt Delozier and Buddy Tignor traveled to St. Stephen's High School in Hickory for the second annual Opportunity Showcase. The principal highly values community college and technical training opportunities and permitted every student in the school to visit representatives from over 15 academic programs between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.
The Natural Resources programs in Geospatial Technology, Pulp and Paper, Horticulture, Forestry Management, and Fish and Wildlife were highlighted. Matt's new animated display was a big hit (the red arrow is pointing to the living image that Matt created as you are speaking with students the images of HCC students in action changes about every 20 seconds) as were the updated Division Brochures created by Dr. Jim Hamilton and Debbie Davis. We talked to about 75 students individually during the course of the day and were asked to return to present NR opportunites and dual enrollment information to the Guidance Counselors.
