Three students from the Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy brought home honors from the recent Career Technical Instruction (CTI) Fall Leadership Conference held at Stone Mountain on November 19. The three placed in components of the Quiz Bowl – one of the most popular events at the conference. Matthew Towe, a senior at Coosa High School, placed first overall in current events; Tommy Boylan, a senior at Model High School, took second in social studies; and David Benefield, also a senior at Model High, finished third in current events.
Students participating in the conference could choose areas of interest to participate in during the Quiz Bowl competition. Quiz options included: math, language arts, social studies (early American history), spelling and current events. Participants taking the quizzes competed against other students from the state attending the conference.
Each fall, students in the CTI program at the Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy attend the conference at Stone Mountain. This year, ten deserving students were selected and participated in a variety of activities including: climbing Stone Mountain, attending a formal CTI dinner, and attending a variety of leadership training sessions.
The CTI Fall Leadership Conference is held each year to provide an opportunity for CTI students from across the state to meet and participate in leadership training and growth sessions.
