On Tuesday, April 18, 2017 BCHS FBLA and Business classes had a guest speaker, Wesley Sewell. Wesley, is a recruiter from Middle Georgia State College and a member of the Bleckley County High School CTAE/CTSO Advisory Board.
He spoke to the business classes about how to get into college. He spoke of the different opportunities they have to obtain scholarships from MGSU and about a scholarship, they offer for Bleckley County students that will pay for half of the first-semester tuition. He also introduced students to the many sports opportunities that MGSU has to offer and about the continuing expansion of their athletic department. Mr. Sewell discussed the diplomas and certificates that students can obtain from MGSU and the academics available to students at a multitude of locations throughout Middle Georgia. He spent a good bit of time discussing their Aviation School located in Eastman and the different opportunities that students could have with the aviation school only found in a few locations throughout the United States. He also discussed the move on when ready program (MOWR) for BCHS students. The students were very involved in what he had to say and learned a lot about MGSU.
