Ready, set, go! The green flag was lowered at the Amazing Race event co-sponsored by HCC and the School District of Hillsborough County. Seniors from more than 15 high schools attended the event hosted at the Plant City campus Trinkle Center, February 3, 2012.
Amazing Race is an event which gives prospective high school seniors an opportunity to interact with HCC AS/AAS degree program representatives. This is particularly important for students during their final semester in high school as they make decisions about their future. The activity began with a brief welcome to encourage students and give them an introduction to HCC programs. Students roamed among the program displays and spoke to representatives about courses and job opportunities. During lunch, students who interacted with at least 10 programs were eligible to participate in a drawing for a digital camera donated by the school district. As students departed, many of them commented positively about their future as HCC students.
