TCC NW Campus Hosts First Junior Achievement Day

FORT WORTH, Texas (Nov. 3, 2015)
Tarrant County College Northwest Campus will introduce more than 300 middle school students to the broad range of post-high school career options they might consider pursuing through educational programs at TCC. These students also will be given information about the affordability of TCC tuition – just $885 for 15 college hours – and the breadth and depth of TCC’s programs, which are taught by many of the same professors also teaching at area four-year colleges and universities.
For the first time, TCC is opening its doors to Junior Achievement to host JA It’s my Future. Seventh-grade students from Ed Willkie Middle School in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw School District will have the opportunity to participate in three sessions that will include role play in an emergency response activity at the TCC Fire Service Training Center and the opportunity to learn how different jobs in the community work together in times of crisis.
Participation in the JA It’s My Future program provides students with practical information to help them make career endorsements when they are in the eighth grade. House Bill 5 requires eighth-grade students to make a career endorsement to help them better plan for their high school classes. As they explore potential careers, students also will discover four factors they should consider when choosing a career to prepare for their future.
