EDITORIAL:  This time of year all we seem to hear about is what's happening on the campuses of the big SEC football schools.  But there's one campus that seems to be doing nothing but cranking out graduates and placing almost every grad with a job.

We're talking about our own Columbus Technical College which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

To help celebrate the 5-decades in operation Columbus Tech volunteers outfitted with official "Paint the Town Blue" tee shirts, have been organizing food drives, and providing free haircuts around town.   

Incredibly, over the last 5-years, 98-percent of Columbus Technical College's students found employment immediately following their graduation.

The two-year school currently with over 6,000 students has wide-ranging areas of study.

If you're interested or have a son or daughter looking for a career in business,  automotive technology, hair styling,  nursing, radiology, pharmacy, accounting, childhood care, hotel management, or any of their 93-programs Columbus Technical College might be your answer. 

It's a great bargain for a college education and seems to be a sure-bet for a job at graduation time.
