ALBANY -- Albany Technical College will host its seventh annual workshop and luncheon for area clergy today from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Kirkland Conference Center.
The theme for the luncheon is "Strengthening the Community -- One Family at a Time."
The purpose of the event is to provide information to clergy in the community about educational choices at Albany Tech, financial aid options and employment opportunities available to graduates.
"We understand the important role ministers play in the lives of our students," said Pamela Heglar, executive vice president and vice president for student affairs and enrollment management. "It is these people who shape our students' character and encourage them to take advantage of education and better their lives. With the help of our local clergy, we can strengthen the Southwest Georgia community, one family at a time."
Guest speaker for the event will be the Rev. Lawrence Knighton, pastor of St. James Baptist Church in Baconton.
In addition, several student testimonials will be presented by Albany Tech students. The Albany Tech Chorus will also perform.
