TROJAN EXPO: TCS shares programs with parents

Troy City Schools hosted parents and students on Thursday night to show off programs that the schools have to offer while also bringing in nonprofits and other community organizations.

This is the second annual Trojan Expo hosted by the school system to show off the school system and connect students with important organizations in the community.

“We want to showcase not just what’s going on within our school system, but what’s going on in the Pike County community as well,” said Dr. Lee Hicks, superintendent. “There are organizations here that apply to other specific areas of their lives.”

The booths included school programs including 3D printing at the Center for Technology, JROTC, culinary arts and more.

Kim Sellers explained how students can use the 3D printer to create their own designs.

“It can really print out whatever each student designs,” Sellers said. “And this is something they can take home with them as well.”

There were also outside organizations such as Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center, 2020 Census officials and many different financial institutions.

“There are many partners that work so well with us, including with our business academy,” Hicks said. “We’re blessed to have all these people here to showcase what they do and nonprofits here to support students as well. We just wanted to open up the doors and let everyone see what we have to offer here in the Troy community and at Troy City Schools.”
