Work Ethic receptions took place at the end of Spring Semester at BCEC in Blakely and on Main Campus in its Technical Studies Division complex. The honorees were students who exemplified good work ethics during the year and were selected by their instructors.

BCEC Director Joan Simpson introduced BC President Tom Wilkerson, who presented their Work Ethics certificates, and Vice President of Student Affairs Marty Clay.
