“This year’s Open House offers opportunities for students at all levels,” said Eddie Waddell, recruitment coordinator. “Whether you are preparing to graduate from high school or are looking to return to college for a second career, we offer more than 200 programs. In addition, we encourage parents to bring their children—we offer classes in early high school and early college. You can earn college credit while you are still in high school. It’s never too soon for the youth in our community to see first-hand all the exciting areas of study Forsyth Tech has to offer!”
