Partners in Excellence

May 6, 2003

Albany - Dougherty County schools say thank you to the businesses and organizations that helped students excel this school year. More than 140 Partners in Excellence were honored with at an appreciation breakfast Wednesday morning. Partners in Excellence help schools with money, mentoring and volunteering.

"Our partners are so important to the success of our schools," said Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley. "Our students are the next workforce, and businesses should care about their education."

Partners in Excellence is also starting a new program called Encouragers. Anyone in the community can become an encourager to a student by supporting them in their school work.
