F.C. Boyd Christian School recently held a Career and College Fair Day for its high school students. The first part of the day, several professionals spoke to the high school students about their various careers. Each of them talked about the educational requirements for their career, what a typical workday was like, pay/salary/benefits, continuing education/training requirements, etc.
Representatives from the following schools were on hand for the college fair in the afternoon: Freed-Hardeman University, University of Tennessee – Knoxville, Motlow State Community College, Tennessee Tech University, Middle Tennessee State University, Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies, Tennessee College of Applied Technology, and Tennessee National Guard.
Abbey Gallaher, Freed-Hardeman admissions recruiter, worked very closely with the students and said “I’m planning for a group of Boyd students to come visit and stay at our campus for two days and nights in the spring.”
All of the representatives talked with the students and provided admissions and scholarship information. Lipscomb University and Harding University recently held lunch visits at Boyd with the juniors and seniors too. Other colleges mailed in information and it was made available for the students as well.
Parents were invited to attend with the students, who found the day to be very informative. Currently all of Boyd’s seniors are planning to attend college upon graduation.
Senior student Morgan Young said, “With having such a small school I was able talk in depth with the different college reps and really focus on which college would be right for me and my future.”
