HONEA PATH --- Tri-County Technical College classes are coming to the Senator Billy O'Dell Learning Center in downtown Honea Path this fall.
Community members are invited to an Open House set for Thursday, July 11, from 2 - 6 p.m. to hear about programs and services being offered. Attendees will have a chance to talk one on one with admissions and financial aid representatives about enrollment and financial aid opportunities.
Tri-County will offer university transfer classes and comprehensive studies courses, as well as prerequisite classes in health care pathways, such as nursing, medical assisting, pre-dental hygiene, pre-veterinary medicine and veterinary technology. Also, dual enrollment classes will be offered for high school juniors.
Also find out how to begin your college career. If you're not sure about what career is right for you, we will have career counseling and tools that help you choose a great career in a job with great pay. A new online tool, Career Coach, can be used to find current local data on wages, employment, job postings, and associated education and training that Tri-County has to offer.
Earlier this year, individuals from Tri-County, Anderson School District 2 and community leaders, including Tri-County Commissioner Al Young, who is president and CEO of The Commercial Bank in Honea Path, gathered to brainstorm about ways to grow the College's presence in Honea Path and to determine course offerings. "We learned that the community wants credit and non-credit classes, but oftentimes travel time to our Pendleton and community campuses can be a barrier to pursuing an education," said Renae Frazier, director of recruitment and admissions at Tri-County.
"This facility is close to home for residents of Honea Path and surrounding cities. Tri-County is here to offer university transfer classes and to help individuals to upgrade their skills for college courses. The Watkins Center provides a place to start and plan your career."
