Students in the Advanced Welding class at the College and Career Institute (CCI) completed a year-long apprenticeship with Denyse Companies in May. Each student spent a full day once a month on the job at DeNyse assisting with projects. The most exciting project involved signage for the new home of the Braves, SunTrust Park.

The CCI is a collaboration between the Douglas County School System, West Georgia Technical College, and the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. Half-day programs at the CCI provide opportunities for high school students to participate and receive credit for programs that may not be offered at their base high schools. Most classes provide both high school and technical college credit and allow students to gain technical skills that increase job prospects whether they go directly into the job market or on to post-secondary options. The CCI building is located on the West Georgia Technical College campus.

DeNyse Companies, based in Douglasville, is a full service company that provides design, installation, service, and repair for architectural signage, commercial signage, lighting, and solar products. DeNyse plans to continue the partnership with the CCI next year.
