Amarillo College will observe Accelerate TEXAS on Wednesday, Nov. 7 by presenting Industry Showcases within three separate academic communities – Business Management and Technology, Industry, and Healthcare – on three Amarillo campuses.
The Showcases are designed to give adult students a firsthand look at academic certificate programs into which they can transition seamlessly and position themselves to take advantage of high-demand career opportunities.
AC’s participating adult students are those presently studying English as a Second Language, or pursuing High School Equivalency credentials, or attending college-readiness courses.
The AC Showcases will be offered in the morning, and students can choose to attend the Showcase that best corresponds with their interests.
