The link between education and the health of our community is vital. That’s why tonight at 5:30 I will be at Hillsman Middle School where the the Mayor and Commissioners and the Board of Education will be meeting. See the agenda attached. In particular, I am interested in the discussion about the Career Academy, a joint venture between CCSD and Athens Tech and one that I know a lot about from my work at Athens Tech. In fact, as dean, I chose to teach at the Career Academy the first term Athens Tech taught college classes there. I wanted to get to know the high school students and serve as an example to our faculty who were often hesitant to go teach in the high schools.
