Some Albany businesses were honored by the Dougherty County School System Wednesday morning. More than 60 businesses came out for Albany Area Chamber of Commerce's Partner's in Excellence Rise-N-Shine breakfast.

The ceremony honored old and new business partners. Eight albany businesses were nominated for partner of the year.

The winner was ASU's NASA SEMA program which was started at West Town Elementary. It's had a positive affect on student achievement.

Dougherty County's Superintendent was focused only on education and not the current investigation going on right now with the school system.

"We're not worried about the CRCT investigation. Our main focus is letting the partners know, how well students in the school are doing."

If you would like to become a partner in the Dougherty County School system call 431-3427.
