Tallahassee, FL-Signing Day may be over, but one local community college got a chance to look at some potential academic recruits Thursday.
Students from the Big Bend participated in Tallahassee Community College's 'Youth Day' celebration.
Youth Day is part of TCC's Black History Month festivities.
The event gives students chance to learn about African American History, nutrition and participate in some Science Technologies Engineering and Math activities.
Organizers say it also gives them a chance to experience what the school has to offer.
"Part of our responsibility has always (been to) reach out to the community in any aspect we can, particularly our middle and high school students who may one day be future students at TCC," said associate professor, Anthony Jones.
Organizers estimate about 200 students participated in 'Youth Day'. The students where from middle schools and high schools in Leon, Wakulla and Gadsden Counties.
