“I guess the main thing I need to say is, ‘Welcome home.’” And with that, Bill Chandler welcomed the dozens of educators, current and former, gathered at the newly opened Georgia Education Museum in Flowery Branch. Chandler, chairman of the Georgia Retired Educators Museum board, expressed relief and pride at Thursday’s ribbon cutting event that the project is complete. “We’ve been on this about eight years now,” the former Hall County educator said.
