State Superintendent praises Albany school

November 20, 2003

Albany-- State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox calls Lincoln Fundamental Magnet School a model for the state. Lincoln is one of the eight Georgia schools nominated for the 2003 to 2004 "No Child Left Behind" Blue Ribbon School Program.

"I have to give credit to our retired Principal Mrs. Janice Shephard," said Principal Sheryl Holmes. "It was because of all of her hard work and the dedication of students parents and the community."

"It's the procedure and the rules and the parents," said Teacher Martha Owens. "All that works together to make us what we are."

The winner will be announced next September. The selected school will be honored in Washington, D.C.
