The morning session included speeches from Glenda Esdelle (ABE’s local representative), Jon Swindell (ABE’s Communications Manager) and Curtis Floyd (ACTT Manager, Registration) and provided students with the opportunity to meet with representatives of the 12 ABE approved colleges that were exhibiting at the event.
