On Friday September 23, 2011 the Franklin Young Professionals put on a career fair for the Macon Early College students. The fair was held in the lobby of Southwestern Community College. We had about a dozen local businesses and organizations represented and even more individual career fields represented. Businesses represented at the fair included Drake Software, Tektone, Macon Bank, Franklin Veterinary Hospital, Duotech Services, REACH, Wayah Insurance, Marty Kimsey Reality, Lamplighter Reality, Town of Franklin, Land Trust for the Little Tennessee, Macon County Schools, and Stay & Play in the Smokies. FYP had a great turn out of participants and we completely filled the lower lobby area. The booths were all wonderful and very professional. There were a lot of hands on displays, visuals, and giveaways at each booth. We were able to interact with the majority of the students that attend MEC.
