Tran­si­tion fair for CCA stu­dents com­ing up in Oct.

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From staff re­ports

The Polk County Col­lege and Ca­reer Academy will be gath­er­ing stu­dents late in the month of Oc­to­ber to take part in their 2017 Tran­si­tion Fair, and are look­ing for lo­cal busi­nesses to take part.

Ac­cord­ing to Tracy Reynolds, the Tran­si­tion Fair be­ing held on Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. is much like the tra­di­tional col­lege or ca­reer fairs held for stu­dents as they are look­ing to­ward their fu­tures as high school winds down. Where the dif­fer­ence lies is the com­bi­na­tion of the va­ri­ety of op­tions for stu­dents.

“The idea is to help them tran­si­tion from high school to the post-se­condary world, whether they go from a job to school or a train­ing pro­gram for a trade,” Reynolds said.

The event is free for any busi­ness ven­dors look­ing for em­ploy­ees to take part in for Oc­to­ber. For more in­for­ma­tion on how to par­tic­i­pate, con­tact Reynolds at 770-684-8719 or email her at

The old red paint on the front of the Red, White and Brew cof­fee shop closed for a cou­ple of years now was turned light blue last week ahead of the start of film­ing for scenes to be used in Sea­son 3 of “Hap and Leonard.”
