Juniors from AHS attended Piedmont Technical College's Open House to explore possible career fields and majors. Students took a career assessment to identify their possible career choices based on their interests which coordinated with specific majors at Piedmont Technical College and 4 year colleges. Students were able to see demonstrations of career fields and talk with instructors about those fields during this time.
