MARIETTA, Ga. -- More than 1,100 students have applied to graduate from Chattahoochee Technical College this month.
The Marietta-based school's commencement ceremony will be held Dec. 17 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
One remarkable soon-to-be-graduate is George House of Canton. House is a former combat medic who entered Chattahoochee Tech with hopes of becoming a nurse. However, he soon discovered that he had a knack for working with electronics.
"I learned about the classes in biomedical and realized it would be a good fit," said House, who is receiving an associate of science in electrical and computer engineering technology with a specialization in biomedical instrumentation technology. "It is an area with great potential for growth and careers."
"I'm looking to secure a position with a company where I can continue to grow and learn," House added.
