March 20 showcase to highlight PTC 2023 travel packages

March 3, 2023

It’s one thing to learn about a place by reading about it or watching a video. To actually experience a place — to see, feel, hear, smell, and taste its historic bounty — is a learning opportunity unparalleled in the world.

Piedmont Technical College is excited to offer travel opportunities once again to the community. To get a preview of several unique trips planned for 2023, interested travelers can attend a special showcase at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 20, 2023, in Room 136GA at the PTC Workforce Innovation Building at 313 North Emerald Road in Greenwood.
