Representatives from a variety of Southeastern Community College programs were on hand along with area employers, including MasTec, Black’s Tire Service, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, N.C. Highway Patrol and Tabor City Police Department. SCC President Chris English and Sheriff Jody Greene were among the attendees. Stacy Stout-Prince, junior and senior counselor at SCHS, said the school hopes to make the career fair an annual event.
