Former FSE Student Speaks
to Ogeechee Tech Students

Rocky Ezell

Rocky Ezell, a graduate of the Funeral Service Education program at Ogeechee Technical College in Statesboro, Georgia, recently returned to the College to speak to current students about his experiences since graduation within the funeral service profession.  Ezell related his experiences with a smaller independently owned funeral home, and with one which is owned by a somewhat larger regional operation.

According to Funeral Service Education instructor, Crystal Vinson, students were interested to learn about Ezell’s opportunities within the funeral service profession and what they may expect when they enter the job market following graduation.  “Often the opportunities for advancement will depend upon the ownership and management structure of the business.  While ‘mom and pop’ businesses may have certain things to offer, medium and large sized firms also have certain advantages for employees,” said Ezell.

“It was great for our students to get the perspective of someone who is working in the profession on a daily basis.  They had the opportunity to get a first-hand description of what they may encounter after they graduate,” stated Vinson.  Ogeechee Technical College is one of only two funeral service education programs in the State of Georgia, and the only one at a public institution in the state.  The program is accredited by the American Board of Funeral Service Education.  For more information on the program, go to www.ogeecheetech.edu.
