TIFTON -- Tiftarea business leaders will get a chance to see what their kids do all day as the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce hosts "Business Goes Back to School" on Tuesday, Nov. 16.
Sixty businesspeople will visit Tift County's 12 schools, speaking with the principal and staff, spending time in the classroom and talking with students at lunch. Hours for the event will be from 9 a.m. to noon.
"This is a way that business leaders can show that they're interested in our education system and find out what they can do to help," said chamber operations manager Carla Willett. "I went last year, and it was an interesting experience. Schools have changed since I was in school."
Businesspeople can choose from visits to Annie Belle Clark, Charles Spencer, Eighth Street Middle, G.O. Bailey, J.T. Reddick, Len Lastinger, Matt Wilson, the Northeast Campus of Tift County High School, Northside, Omega, TCHS and the Tift County Pre-Kindergarten Center.
Registration is limited to the first 60 applicants.
"Business Goes Back to School" is an initiative of the chamber's Business and Education partnership.
For more information or to register, contact Willett at 382-6200. Participants are asked to list their first three choices and will be assigned to one of the schools.
To contact city editor Florence Rankin, call 382-4321, ext. 209.
