When seven out of ten students attend a college tuition-free, you can be certain of that college’s dedication to strengthening those students’ knowledge and skill base! And that’s exactly what’s happening at Piedmont Technical College in Greenwood, South Carolina, which has served the largest geographical area of any technical college in the state since 1966. Its dynamic career-preparatory programs cover such fields as agriculture, engineering graphics and automotive technology, among many more. Professional counselors are constantly on-hand to give career and coursework advice, and the college has held an Employers Day each term for more than 30 years, to help graduates connect with opportunities within the region and across the state. Furthermore, more than 300 human-interest courses are available through PTC, for those interested in continuing/adult education and those not pursuing a degree. Piedmont Technical is devoted to serving its community and to growing and developing young minds, well into the heart of the twenty-first century and beyond.
