2017 Partners in Education Breakfast

Our Presenting Sponsors, Steelcase at the Partners in Education Breakfast.

It’s that bittersweet time of year: summer is over, football season is right around the corner and our kids are back in school. But rather than let a case of the back-to-school blues set in, the Chamber started the new academic year off on the right foot with our annual Partners in Education Program!  Through the Chamber’s Partners in Education program, each Athens City School, Limestone County School and area private schools are partnered with a Chamber member business who becomes their school partner for the 2017-2018 school year.  In July, the Chamber hosted the annual Partners in Education kick-off breakfast which provides an opportunity for each school representative and each partnering business representative to meet one another and plan events and activities for the upcoming school year.  Businesses who are partners with the schools provide support through a number of activities including: providing classroom speakers and presenters, serving as tutors in the school, serving as a volunteer at various school activities, helping with school beautification projects, assisting with school activities (sporting events, fundraisers, etc.), or helping with a school organization or club.  These are just a few examples of how our businesses are supporting our local schools.  These partnerships are resulting in better schools, better communities and a better future for our young people.

The Chamber would like to recognize our 2017 Partners in Education Breakfast Sponsors: Premier Sponsor-Steelcase, Gold Sponsors: American Leakless, Asahi Kasei Plastics North America and Redstone Federal Credit Union, Silver Sponsors: Athens State University, Athens First United Methodist Church, Coil Plus, First National Bank and Hobbs Jewelers, Breakfast Sponsor: Representative Danny Crawford, and Corporate Sponsor: Home Mortgage of America. 

The Chamber is looking forward to an amazing year through the Partners in Education Program.
