They are highlighting a couple of the programs we offer all students at Northwestern, said Don Foley, Northwestern public relations director. They spent a full day on campus shooting video within our occupational therapy assistant and electronics programs.
A film crew from West Georgia Technical College arrived on campus on May 17 for the shoot. Northwestern, along with Georgias 37 other technical colleges and divisions, will be the focus of a Road Trip special series to air on GPTV.
The story line will allow high school students to see what technical colleges in Georgia have to offer, said Foley. You wont see any actors when they focus on Northwestern Technical College. Youll see our students thriving in their surroundings. We want everyone to know about the success our students are enjoying.
Mitch Kimball and Richard Fate from West Georgia Technical College coordinated the shoot with Foley, occupational therapy assistant instructors Lisa Carruth and Marilyn Essex, and electronics instructors Lamar Thurman and Dustin Scott.
The Road Trip series on technical colleges is a cooperative effort between GPTV and Georgias Department of Technical and Adult Education. More than 2,100 students are enrolled in more than 90 different programs at Northwestern Technical College.
Northwestern is in its 40th year of service. The only area college which operates on quarters begins its summer quarter on July 10. The deadline to apply is June 8.
