Posted: Wednesday, 08 July 2009

DOTHAN—Education majors at Troy University’s Dothan Campus visited Southeast Alabama Medical Center on Wednesday, July 8, to help children there start thinking about future goals.

A group of 15 TROY students majoring in early childhood and elementary education discussed the importance of a college education with the approximately 50 children who attend the Child Development Center.

The TROY students came dressed in the typical uniforms of a variety of careers—from nurses to farmers—and shared what kind of training and education each career requires.

The goal was to get children thinking about their futures and to show that each career path starts with a college degree, said Amy Farver, coordinator of student services.
