MOUNT OLIVE – The University of Mount Olive Tillman School of Business recently coordinated with the Career & Technical Education program at Johnston County Public Schools to hold an on-campus event.

Approximately 120 students visited the University’s flight school and attended a lecture presented by Tillman School of Business faculty discussing different business disciplines. They also toured campus, ate lunch in the dining hall, and got to experience a bit of campus life.

The event provided students an opportunity to learn more about the extensive opportunities that are unique to various fields of business. One main goal of the event was to teach students how to start building pathways for successful career opportunities.

Students visit the Mount Olive Airport and learn about the University of Mount Olive aviation program.

Dean of the Tillman School of Business Dr. Kathy Best talks to the Johnston County students about programs with the UMO Tillman School of Business, as well as career opportunities.

Johnston County resident and President of the University of Mount Olive Dr. H. Edward Croom talks with students in the Career & Technical Education program.
