Worth Co. High School receives grants to help students

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

Worth County High School is getting money for programs to help students enter college and the workforce.

The Worth County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority was awarded a $3000 grant through Georgia Partners of Excellence in Education.

The money will be used to take students to visit technical colleges and bring in business leaders to speak with students to prepare them for job interviews.

"As parents, teachers, we can tell the students everyday but when you have the actual person that's gone be doing the hiring talking to you and saying these are the skills and these are the skill sets that I'm looking for it makes a big difference,” said Karen Rackley, Chamber President Executive.

It's the second time the Chamber has received the grant.

The school will get a $1,500 check on February 25th and another $1,500 in April.
