Dr. Anthony Parker, President of Albany Technical College said, “The accomplishments of these graduates during COVID-19 is remarkable. I can’t stress how important it is to be flexible and open to what is available. Technical colleges work very closely with local employers to create placement opportunities for all graduates. If a student has made it this far, they know it takes hard work, but they can achieve their goals. We want our students to go into the community knowing that they are prepared with the best career education available.”
