Several scholarships to be handed out at Tech Night

Lee College will give away a dozen scholarships to lucky students who attend Tech Night, an annual event that showcases technical programs of study.

High-school students from surrounding districts, current college students and members of the community are all invited to Tech Night, to be held from 6-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 8, in the Lee College Sports Arena. Through hands-on demonstrations, exhibits and one-on-one conversations with instructors, participants will learn about the wide variety of programs available at the college that can lead to jobs in the technical, industrial, science and health care fields.

Representatives from several programs will be on hand to answer questions and discuss opportunities, including: process technology; computer technology; electrical and instrumentation technology; industrial studies, such as welding, pipefitting, millwright and machine tech; logistics; professional administrative technology; allied health; nursing; physics; and pre-engineering.

Tech Night attendees will be able to participate in a raffle to win one of 12 student scholarships ranging from $200-500, along with other prizes. There will also be information available about the non-credit courses offered through the Center for Workforce and Community Development, and the resources and services provided through Student Affairs, Financial Aid and the Educational Opportunity Center.
