COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - On Tuesday night, the Muscogee County School District hosted their sixth annual Transition-Resource Fair at the Columbus State Student Rec Center.
The annual fair helps students with both mental and physical disabilities transition to life after high school.
"We have learned through research the earlier you start with transition, the greater the possibility of positive outcomes," said Paula Dukes, MCSD Transition Program Manager.
The Muscogee County School District has made it a point to start transition at an early age. This fair hosts families of middle school and high school students in an attempt to help make life after high school an easier transition.
Two students that were at this fair in years passed were in attendance, sharing their success.
"Well I have personal experience because I have had ADD so I was like well I should do something that you know I had a personal experience," said CSU Special Education major Ashley Soto. "So I can motivate people that have the same disability as me"
Following speeches from Soto and others, the informational session ended and families had the opportunity to head upstairs and speak with specific business that look to make this transition easier.
