Seventh-grade students hoping to find ideas for a possible career choice were on hand recently for a career fair at Motlow College and Tennessee Technology Center.The Career Awareness Day is a collaborative activity between Bridgestone/ Firestone, Tennessee Technology Center, Motlow State Community College, and the Warren County School System.Students attended sessions on the McMinnville campuses of Motlow and Tennessee Technology Center and had the opportunity to attend three sessions related to their career interests. The students were provided a session sign-up sheet containing 18 different choices based on career clusters. The way in which they ranked their top five choices determined which sessions they would attend.Career representatives came from around the spectrum, from agriculture to automotive repair, from education to engineering.Debra Akers teaches computer information technology at TTC.
