Students interested in the medical field now have the option of taking a series of four honors courses at the Applied Technology Education Campus (ATEC). ATEC’s Assistant Director Gordon Morris said he visited University of South Carolina (USC) in 2011 to learn about Project Lead the Way (PLW), the creator of the courses. Health science is the biggest growth area at ATEC, Morris said.
