HICKORY FLAT — The Cherokee Office of Economic Development’s Be Pro Be Proud mobile classroom is visiting Sequoyah High School and Dean Rusk Middle School to teach students about high-demand technical careers in Georgia.

Wednesday, Brad Mann’s AVTF (AV Technology and Film) class at Sequoyah visited the Be Pro Be Proud truck and tried out hands-on activities related to technical careers.

COED launched the initiative in July 2020.

Reggie LaGrone, tour manager, and Matthew “Hutch” Hutcheson, tour driver, travel throughout Georgia during the school season bringing awareness of skilled professions directly to students through an interactive mobile workshop and website that features 15 of the state’s most in-demand professions along with statewide training programs and companies looking to hire talent. Be Pro Be Proud will visit Creekview High School and Creekland Middle School next week.
