The students of Hall County have much to feel accomplishment about and to be thankful for this fall. As a community, we should take time to praise them for academic, community and athletic excellence.
Three of Hall’s six traditional high schools made U.S. News and World Report’s list of 19 top schools in the state, and the Lanier Career Academy is on a course that may make it Hall’s first charter school. This year, 39 Hall County students have been selected for the Governor’s Honors Program.
We have a promising student whose photograph will be the next cover of state highway maps, and another whose work won in the 9th District photography competition. One of Hall’s teams headed to the Georgia Dome in the state football playoffs last Saturday.
We should all take this opportunity to congratulate them for and to encourage them to strive toward greater achievements. Our community has done well, and, with careful planning and continued efforts, should do even better.
President, Hall County Education Association, Gainesville
