SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. — Students, educators and others with a stake in the Social Circle schools had the chance to talk with the state school superintendent and a board member.

Superintendent Richard Woods and board member Lee Ann Cowart took a tour of the Social Circle High School Career, Technical and Agricultural Education Department.

“I can describe what I saw today in one word — exciting,” Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I am excited about opportunities for students here and excited about the involvement of the community in the school system.

“It is evident that you don’t put up barriers. Educators and the community work collaboratively to help each student succeed.”

He also praised the continued progress in the Social Circle City Schools.

“Social Circle High School has all bases covered. However, it is nice to see you are not resting on your laurels,” Woods said. “You continue to seek the best opportunities for your students whether they plan to join the military, attend technical school or a university, are looking for an internship or a job.”

Woods and Cowart came to the high school to see how the Georgia Department of Education might be of service to the city’s school system.

“We are proud of our students, administrators, teachers, staff and community stakeholders who work very hard to reach our goal of being a premier school system,” Social Circle schools Superintendent Todd McGhee said.

“Together we vow to continue the great work so that we may take Social Circle City Schools to an even higher level of excellence.”
