GAINESVILLE – On November 1, scholars from six different school districts converged to the University of North Georgia campus for the initial REACH Georgia College and Career Exploration Summit.
Co-hosted by Lanier Technical College and University of North Georgia, the intent of the summit was to introduce students to potential career opportunities, give them a student’s perspective of life after high school on a college campus, and to give them an inside view of the campus while on a walking tour.
Open to current high school freshman, sophomores and juniors, over 50 REACH Scholars from Atlanta Public Schools, Barrow County, Coffee County, Forsyth County, Richmond County and White County attended the summit.
Participating sponsors and partners for the event included: Chick Fil A, AT&T, City of Gainesville, Fieldale Farms, Georgia Pardons and Paroles, Georgia Power, Jacobs Media, Lanier Islands, Longstreet Clinic and Wells Fargo.
