Gainer said. "'and tbey'll be using the most modern machines and materials available." Center staff members were setting up equipment that was still being shipped in last week. "Some equipment." Gainer pointed out. "is coming on loan from the Federal Defense Industry Reserve." Each lab is a self-contained unit having its own restroom facilities. Same have lockers and showers. There is ms intercom system for instructors a telephone keyed into a master phone in each lab. Four labs have their own outside, garage-size, overhead doors. The building also has its own complete water treatment system. Water is drawn from two wells on the, property and stored in a 2.500 gallon tank. "We also have our own approved "mini" sewerage treatment system." Gainer stated. When students walk through the blue double doors of their new school next Wednesday morning, they'll be "greeted" first by three life-size mannequins, part of a simulated store window display in the Cooperative Education Lab. A two-year co-op program. coordinated and taught by Mrs. Cindy Echard of Glenville, will include study of salesmanship, retailing, wholesal- , Ill I I ing, window displays buying and prit:mg, advertising, and business occupatioas. The lab contains its own mini-store complete with shelving, actual products, and other usual retailing equipment. Students will run the "'mini-store'" their first year in the nr()~ram, then the second year will be placed in local businesses cooperating with the Career Center in the new program. "'We expect to take up to 14 pupils per class and have two classes per day." Mrs. Echard said. One of the most popular programs offered at the Center is a Nurse Aid Trainifig course, with classes to be held in the Health Occupations Lab. "We had 45 applicants for the course from Gilmer tligh alone," Gainer said. "and only eight slots available." To be taught by Mrs. Mavis Miller. former head surgical nurse at Calhoun General Hospital, the one-year course will be given to 15 or 16 students. While the lab contains a fully equipped "'mini hospital" with dummy patients. and a dispensary, students will also receive some training later in the year at the Calhoun hospital. "We also hope to be able to offer a Licensed Practical Nurse program in the future." Gainer expalined. An adjacent smaller lab will be used for a Medical Assistant program. Students will learn, among other things, how to keep medical records, order supplies, bookkeeping, how to fill out insurance forms and. in short. learn all business procecures common to doctors" offices, Business and Office Education. a two-year program, will cover business machine operation, including data I I I Dr. Donald S.

"Students will be able to get light food items in the cafeteria, prepared and served by students, during breaks. Instructor for the course is Mrs. Terry Foglesong.
