Social Circle school superintendent Bettye Ray leaves lasting legacy

Social Circle is losing our highly respected Superintendent of Social Circle City Schools who plans to retire at the end of the current school year.

For me, this suggests that the way we live expresses our deepest faith. I thought about that in recognizing how important our churches have been in supporting our community. For example, at our recent city-wide cleanup, almost all of our churches showed up to help.
