Albany --  Albany businesses are honored for teaming up local schools to make sure students and teachers have the resources they need.

Dozens of businesses and community leaders were recognized for their commitment to Dougherty County Schools at the annual Partners in Excellence Rise and Shine Breakfast.

"This is a celebration of our partners in excellence. We probably some 150 partners who contribute to our children and extraordinary ways and we are so grateful to them," says Dougherty County Schools Supt. Dr. Sally Whatley.

"What this event does is recognize the education of our students here in Dougherty County and of course the students are what we are depending on to come and feed the businesses that we have now and the businesses that we hope to attract in the future," said Chamber of Commerce Chairman  Jay Smith.

The Dougherty County Board of Education, the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce, and Regions Bank sponsored the event.
