Students from the ninth-grade campus of Jones County High School recently got a glimpse into what could be their future.

The 90 freshmen given the opportunity to see the high school’s Career Technology and Agriculture Education classes Dec. 7 are agriculture students at the ninth-grade campus and they were greeted by Dr. Tiffany Walker, who supervises the program.

The first item on the day’s agenda was lunch. The students dined on grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and had a few minutes to enjoy the warm fall day before beginning their tour.

Walker said CTAE is divided into three different pathways, Horticulture-Plant Science, Forestry-Natural Resources, and Agriculture Mechanics. She said the purpose of the tour was to give students a chance to see the opportunities each pathway provides and get a feel for each one of them.
