BROOKLYN, MS (WDAM) -

Forrest County Agricultural High School was the site for Tuesday’s Career and Technical Awareness Day.

Representatives from Pearl River Community College talked to students about the importance of secondary education.

Students received pamphlets and talked with specialists about different programs that PRCC has to offer.

The high school offers programs to prepare students for secondary education and training.

"We make sure that we're offering what the post secondary needs to have them ready, so when they get to Pearl River, they're confident and ready to take off from there" said Forrest County AHS career and technical director Suzanne Kelly.

PRCC offers scholarships to all students who have a 3.0 GPA out of high school.
