Local high school students received awards for developing the soft skills that can help them in real-world workplaces. An award ceremony was held at the First Baptist Church in Gainesville on Monday for 120 students who completed the Georgia Business Ethics Student Training program, started by the Georgia Department of Labor in 2012. It began operating in 20 Georgia schools and has expanded to 150.
