"Changing hands and minds"
Welcome to the Dillon County Technology Center’s Website. Our goal at DCTC is to help students develop skills in their chosen career paths through the use of instruction, hands on activities, and real world application. Students who enter DCTC programs have a choice to select a program that they are most interested in and have the opportunity to join student organizations related to their field of study. These organizations are an excellent way to foster relationships with other schools, share with and learn from others, compete at the state and national levels, travel, and meet new people.

The administration has an open door policy and welcome our students and parents to come in and visit with us any time. We have some great opportunities for you to expand your knowledge.

Dillon County Technology Center students visits Atlanta Georgia
The Dillon County Technology Center Sports and Entertainment Marketing and Sports and Entertainment Management students visited the CNN Center, Coke Cola Museum, and toured the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia over the weekend. The trip was geared toward enlightening students on the many career opportunities available to them in the sports and entrainment industry. The tour began with a behind the scenes look at the CNN control room. It then moved to HLN News Set where we were allowed to interact with the digital weather board in a mock weather forecast. The students were shown the CNN International News Room from an observation deck. The students learned interesting facts about CNN and the various networks in Turner Broadcasting Systems, Inc. The tour concluded with a look at the HLN Newsroom. Mrs. Linda Turner, teacher DCTC, stated “The tour was a wonderful opportunity for the students. It provided them with broader prospective and endless possibilities for their future careers in sports and entertainment. They learned broadcasting the news consisted of more than being in front or behind a camera.”
