‘Top Gun’ Status awarded to Georgia’s Work-Based Learning Coordinators

Colquitt County High School’s Heather Edwards was one of twenty teachers/WBL coordinators invited to attend the 2016 Top Gun training, representing all regions of the state. The concept of the “Top Gun” training is based loosely on the theme of the movie of the same name: the best of the best are honored with participation in a specialized training opportunity, and given the chance to compete and hone their skills. Participants are then better prepared to promote Georgia’s Work-Based Learning program, which gives Georgia students the opportunity to receive credit while working in an environment related to their Career Pathway.
