Humphreys County High Schoolers and Eighth Graders Learn About Educational to Career Pathways


Recently, more than 600 area high schoolers and eighth graders joined faculty and staff at Nashville State’s Humphreys County campus on Holly Lane in Waverly to learn about high-demand and high-wage careers.

The purpose was to expose the students to such in-demand career paths as Industrial Process Control Technology (IPCT), Computer Programming, Automation, Healthcare, Electrical Engineering, and more.

The program is part of a partnership with Be Pro Be Proud, an initiative led by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce, in coordination with industry leaders to introduce career pathways to students by providing hands-on learning opportunities through a mobile workshop. In addition to the mobile simulation lab, students received a campus tour and participated in a college admissions session.

The event was organized by Humphreys County Economic Development Council Executive Director Ted Moore, Nashville State IPCT Program Director Danny Sensing, and Nashville State’s Humphreys County campus and Dickson campus Director Telaina Wrigley.

“We just want these students to know that many opportunities exist for them to make money through proper training and education,” said Wrigley. “Thank you to Mr. Moore, Danny, the principals, staff, teachers, and local officials for making sure this happened. We hope these students gained a greater awareness.”
