BCHS Hosts Georgia Future Educators Signing Day
Across the state on May 8th, local school systems were encouraged to host a Georgia Future Educators Signing Day. The Bleckley County Board of Education was honored to participate in this opportunity to recognize five high school seniors who have decided to pursue a career in education. This event was held in the Media Center at Bleckley County High School on May 8th at 2:30 pm. The five seniors who were recognized were Rachel Harbin, Sydney Hilliard, Tyler Sapp, Katlyn Sanders, and Meri Kaitlyn Smith.
Parents, teachers, and school administrators along with college and university representatives were in attendance for this signing. ceremony. According to research, 60% of teachers work within 20 miles of where they went to high school. It is our hope that this event will serve as a catalyst to spark conversations with our students about the benefits and rewards of becoming an educator.
