Panola College to Host 2020 College and Career Fair
Panola College will host a College and Career Fair from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, in the Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center.
Faculty members will be on hand to answer questions about Panola College’s career and technical programs including Associate Degree Nursing, Vocational Nursing, Medical Assisting, Health Information Technology, Medical Laboratory Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, Occupational Therapy Assisting, the School of Energy, Business, Cosmetology, and Computer Information Technology.
“We will have brochures with program and course information available, along with displays including simulation manikins for health sciences and cosmetology,” said Reanna Hart, Panola College Recruitment and Completion Coordinator. “We will also have microscopes, a virtual welder, programmable logic trainer, therapy and rehabilitation tools and other instructional items.”
Business and industries participating include Eastman Chemical, J-W Power Company, Allegiance Mobile Health, CHRISTUS EMS, Nacogdoches Medical Center, Rusk State Hospital, Archrock, and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport. “These are the companies who have committed so far, and we expect that additional participants will sign up before April 8,” Hart said.
Students planning to transfer from Panola College to a university will be able to meet with representatives from Northwestern State University’s College of Nursing, East Texas Baptist University, Stephen F. Austin State University, and Texas A&M Commerce. Hart said she expects more universities to sign up before the event.
Current students, prospective students, and community members are invited to come to the College and Career Fair to learn more about Panola College programs and how they can lead to immediate employment opportunities or transfer to universities.
