Worth Co. welcomes new teacher hires

Posted: Updated:
 Worth County is welcoming in some new teachers. They hired more than 50 new teachers for the upcoming school year.

The Board of Education and the Chamber of Commerce are putting together welcome packets with items donated by area businesses as part of the partners in education program.

They say support has been overwhelming.

"People like to give little promotional items, but also discounts, books to let them know what our community holds for them and just kind of give them a little welcome into our community," said Sylvester-Worth County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Karen Rackley.

The last day to drop off items at the chamber office is July 17th.

The Welcome Packets will be passed out July 28th at New Teacher Orientation.
