Darrin Davis has been a guidance counselor for 25 years. He’s seen it all.
But after taking a group of students from Camp Creek Middle School to the KIA Manufacturing plant in West Point and attending SkillsUSA in the spring, he has a new vision for what he hopes to do in Fulton County as he guides young minds into adulthood.
“I’m having conversations about trying to bring back architecture and constriction programs and that came out of me visiting SkillsUSA last spring,” Davis told me. “I want to try and link our kids into this careers that don’t require a bachelor’s degree.”
Davis applied for and received the Trade Five grant we’ve written about before. He said the $500 went to helping cover the cost of a charter bus it took to get the students to and from the KIA plant.
