Covington students recognized at local campus luncheon
The DeKalb Technical College Covington Campus’ club and organization advisors recently held a ceremony and luncheon, honoring the dedication and commitment of its campus club and organization members.
The students were recognized with certificates and accolades.
Barbara Clay, coordinator of student activities at the Covington campus, said college administrators believe in the importance of offering a variety of clubs and organizations for students to join.
“The friendships, the leadership training, the community service opportunities and the avenues of competition give our students valuable experiences that are fun while enhancing the college experience,” Clay said. “These experiences on a resumé also speak volumes to prospective employers who see that these students are dedicated, caring, hard working individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to go the extra mile for their fellow students, their college, their communities and their career.”
