ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than 60 Georgia education and business leaders are in Albany experiencing what the city has to offer.

Two busloads of people arrived in downtown Albany Tuesday night. They're traveling the state on the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education's 16th Annual Bus Tour.

The group toured the newly renovated Thronateeska Heritage Center and got the first look at the new planetarium. The bus tour is aimed at strengthening education throughout Georgia.

"It's a great link that we all share and we all need. You've got to have that connection of course between the workforce needs and what's being taught in the curriculum and that's what is being celebrated tonight," said Albany Chamber of Commerce President Catherine Glover.

On Wednesday, the group will tour International Studies Elementary Charter School. The school was recently honored as a national Blue Ribbon award winner.
