ECTC offering Mobile Information Station

The Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Mobile Training Station will visit a few locations in Hardin County to help those with questions or needs related to ECTC.

Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will offer a Mobile Information Station to help those who would like to meet face-to-face with a college representative but cannot get to campus.

ECTC Director of Re­cruit­ment Sarah Berkshire said the school has been using the information station in the community for a little more than a year.

However, she said this will be the first time they take it to high schools and community areas as a specific recruiting effort, since it is usually event-based.

“This is the first time that we’ve been able to kind of do this type of outreach, since things started off with a pandemic back in March,” Berkshire said.

Lately, Berkshire said the recruitment team has been conducting meetings on the phone, as well as through email and video, but said she knows there are people who are more comfortable meeting in person.

“We’re just trying to make it as convenient as possible for people,” Berkshire said.

She said members of the recruitment team will be at these locations, outdoors, under an awning and at separate tables for social distancing. Face coverings are required.

They’ll be answering questions, provide program information, have computers if people want to complete their application and discuss financial aid.

Staff will be stationed outside the Mobile Training Unit at the following times, dates and locations. The unit was at John Hardin High School Thursday: 

• North Hardin High School: 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Tuesday.

• Central Hardin High School 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Aug. 10

• Elizabethtown-Hardin County Industrial Foundation 7-9 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Aug. 11

ECTC’s fall session classes begin Aug. 17.

Anyone interested in learning about ECTC’s academic programs, transferring, affording college or applications is encouraged to visit the Mobile Training Station. For more information, go to elizabethtown.kctcs.edu or call 270-769-2371.
