Wilkinson Visits Big A Elementary for Pre-K Week
"I always enjoy getting to see the young students," said Wilkinson. "They are always so enthusiastic and they are so excited about being in school and learning new things. It rejuvenates me to spend time around them." Stephens County School Superintendent Sherrie Whiten said it was a pleasure for the school system to welcome Wilkinson into the classroom. "He did a fantastic job," said Whiten. "He relates so well to the kids. The kids really enjoyed the story. We appreciate being able to highlight all of the great things we do with Pre-K because it is a wonderful program." Whiten said the event also gives school officials a chance to highlight the importance of Pre-K programs in education.
The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
