Fifteen recent Thomson High School graduates and one rising senior were among those receiving degrees, diplomas and certificates. These students enrolled in Augusta Technical College's dual enrollment program in order to work towards their Patient Care Assisting Technical Certificate of Credit. They enrolled in courses in the evening in addition to their regular high school academics. These students studied courses in Employer Relations and Interpersonal Skills, Medical Terminology, Diet and Nutrition and Certified Nursing Fundamentals. Upon completion of their coursework they were able to apply their knowledge through hands on clinical experience. Julie Langham, enrollment manager, Augusta Technical College had the following things to say about the students: "The benefit of this program is that through articulated credit from Thomson High School and dual enrollment, students are able to get a head start on their LPN diploma where other students would basically be starting from scratch right after their high school graduation. "Even students who plan to attend a fouryear college benefit from this program because it introduces them to college life and gives them basic academic courses that will provide a good strong foundation for any major they choose. "This is our fourth year that we have offered this program for the high school students. The seniors worked very hard to juggle both college and high school academics. It is very rewarding to see them graduate from Thomson High and then almost one month later they participated in our Augusta Technical College graduation ceremony. Upon completion of the program they are eligible to apply to take the certification exam and actually go to work."s Area students graduate from Augusta Tech Special Students graduating are (l-r) Brianna Burns, Caitlyn Gregory, Kasha Bentley, Holly Oubre (rising senior), Kiana Anderson, Deangela Reese, Jessica Taylor, Taylor Clark, Victoria Taylor, Amber Smith, Taneka Bell, Uniquequa Wilcher, Breanna Davis and Ray Rodgers.
