Griffin Rotary Embraces Youth Service and Supports Teachers in the Community
The Rotary Club of Griffin welcomed over 100 new teachers
and administrators to its July 27 meeting for its annual New Teacher
Appreciation luncheon. The 2017 Georgia
Teacher of the Year, Casey Bethel, presented the program. Mr. Bethel praised the Rotary Club of Griffin
for bringing together educators and community leaders. The Club also presented donations to the
Griffin-Spalding Education Celebration which provides school supplies to
teachers for use in the classroom, and to the Griffin-Spalding Partners in
Education to support its classroom and field trip grants for teachers.
The Rotary Club of Griffin also sponsored Gray Long, a
rising junior from St. George’s Episcopal School in Milner, Georgia, to attend
RYLA at Georgia Southwestern State University. Gray spoke to the club at its August 3 meeting to thank them for
allowing him to participate in RYLA.
