November 14th, 2014

Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Center hosted their Fall College and Career Day on November 6, 2014. Over 35 Business and Colleges took part in the event. Perkins students as well as 300 high school seniors from Floyd County school system and Madison County schools got to visit each vendor and learn about different career paths, and college institutions. Students got to talk with the US Army, Marines, KY federal and state probations officers. Walmart, McDonalds, University of KY and University of Pikeville just to name a few. The high school students also got packets and tours of the Perkins center, before leaving.  

This was a wonderful opportunity for the Perkins students and local high school students to explore the various opportunies that are waiting on them, once they graduate and move on to the next chapter in their lives.

Carl D. Perkins would like to thank all of the Employers, Colleges, and students that attended the event.
