Educators in Lowndes county are getting ready for a new school year. Teachers from all five county schools gathered today at their annual convocation to celebrate the end of pre-planning and the beginning of a new school term.
Special guest at the event was the new county superintendent, Dr. Steve Smith, who says he's excited about working with such a prestigious school system.
"I'm very impressed with Valdosta and the Lowndes county school system, and am looking forward to working with the staff," said Smith.
Lowndes county schools will begin this Friday.
