The Oakwood Digital Academy hosted its first Career and Education Fair Oct.18 in the school gymnasium. Representatives from several local post-secondary education institutions were on hand, including the University of West Georgia, Chattahoochee Tech, Georgia Perimeter College, Southern Polytechnic University, Georgia Highlands College, and Westwood College. Businesses that participated included the Georgia Association of Black Women’s Attorneys, Alston & Bird, and IBM. There were also military recruiters from the Navy and the Air Force, as well as the Georgia Student Finance commission, Favor Academy, and the 5 Star Youth Alliance College Tour Program.
More than 80 Oakwood students visited the different tables, asked questions, and received information to help guide them in their post-secondary discoveries. It was also our first “Dress for Success” Day, and many students participated. The staff of Oakwood Digital Academy wants to thank all of the presenters for taking time out of their busy schedules to visit with our student body.
