Note: Mr Wes Taylor is Superintendent of Lowndes County Georgia Schools

"Mr. Wes Taylor just paid me a personal visit.  He congratulated the girls and I for our win this weekend and also shared a wonderful story.  The county office received an email from an elderly couple who was shopping at Tanger yesterday.  During their visit, they were having some issues with the drink machines and some of our girls were nice enough to stop and help them.  They were not sure who to contact so they emailed the board office to let them know how thankful they were for their help.  I have not identified the girls who performed this good deed but I wanted to thank you all for raising such sweet girls!"
