Clayton Slade, a recent summa cum laude graduate of Southwestern Community College’s Outdoor Leadership program, won the grand prize for SCC’s annual career seminar series – an initiative to prepare students for job searches and professional success.

That grand prize, a laptop donated by the Drake Retail Businesses (Dalton’s Christian Bookstore, DNet Internet Services, Franklin Golf Course, Macon Printing, Microtel Inn & Suites and Sportszone) of Franklin, was just what Slade needed to get off to a strong start in his new role as assistant manager of Nantahala river rafting operations for the Nantahala Outdoor Center.

“I jumped up and down a bit,” Slade said. “The last laptop I had broke down five years ago, and I haven’t had one since. … I am so grateful to the Drake Retail Businesses for providing this amazing piece of equipment and to SCC for helping me develop the skills I need to be successful.”

To be eligible for the prize drawing, Slade and other participants were required to attend at least two career center events. He attended three: dining etiquette, job fair and interviews in the round.
