State Superintendent of Schools Richard Woods made a special visit to Luella High School Tuesday to present FastTrack grant banners to both the high school and Luella Middle.
In October, the Georgia Department of Education announced the Henry schools were two of four schools chosen in the state to receive FastTrack grants. The grants will be used to support the schools’ Career, Technical and Agricultural Education labs.
At Luella Middle, the funds will be used to enhance the technology and family/consumer science labs. Students at Luella High School will benefit from an additional six labs to be built at the school.
“It’s exciting,” said Jerry Smith, Luella High principal. “We’re here celebrating the support the Georgia Department of Education has given our CTAE.”
Henry County Schools Superintendent Mary Elizabeth Davis gave thanks to Woods and the GaDOE for the funding.
“There is a true vision in Henry County Schools — to ensure everyone is equipped and ready to contribute to our community,” she said.
Woods offered his congratulations to the schools for earning the grants.
