Tori Price – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – State College of Florida – Manatee/Sarasota (SCF-M/C), Manatee Technical College (MTC), U.S. Army recruiters and representatives from the Beall’s Corporation set up tables in the LRHS courtyard in front of the lunchroom to talk to seniors still making decisions about their futures. They were all willing to answer any questions students had about their schools or programs.

Kristey Richardson from SCF, said, “Our whole goal for being here is to give students options for college. So far today we have talked to 21 students.”

Each table had pamphlets and booklets that students could take home to answer any other questions that they might have had that were not answered.

US Army Staff Sgt. Jefferey Albert said, “I talk to at least one person a day that is genuinely interested in the Army. I am able to tell them my experience and lead them to further steps if they are serious about wanting to join the Army.”
