Northside High School spends the day for Columbus Technical College

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some local students got a taste of what life will be like after high school on Friday.

Kids from Northside High School went on a retreat to Columbus Technical College. Educators demonstrated curriculum from programs like criminal justice, healthcare, chemistry, and cosmetology.

Students got hands on experience when they toured classrooms and labs.

"I feel like it will really benefit us because we're seniors and we're all going to college next year, and it shows us what to really expect," Rachel Shehane said, a student at Columbus Tech.

The event was part of the Partners in Education Program. Columbus Tech says events like this are a great way to showcase the school as a post-secondary option for young people.
