GOAL Program at RATC




Russell Area Technology Center’s Advanced Placement Computer Science, Web Page Development & Website Design classes would like to thank Carla Killough McClafferty, Author, of Tech Titans & many others, for her video conference with our students today!! Through the Tech Titans discussion, students were able to talk with Ms. McClafferty about Bill Gates (Microsoft), Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak (Apple), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Sergey Brin & Larry Page (Google).


This was a great extension to our recent lessons and reinforced the importance of hard work, continual learning and courage to pursue dreams! We are so happy to be able to provide an innovative way to learn inside the classroom with funding through G.O.A.L. and Kentucky Power with assistance from Kentucky Educational Development Corporation (KEDC).
