Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower this week presented at the 2023 “State of the County” program.
The regional Council for Quality Growth nonprofit group organizes the annual luncheon. Wednesday’s featured reports by Cherokee County Board of Commissioners Chairman Harry Johnston, Cherokee Office of Economic Development President Misti Martin and Dr. Hightower.
More than 300 elected officials and economic development and business leaders from Cherokee and throughout metro Atlanta attended the sold-out event at the Cherokee Conference Center at The Bluffs in Canton.
Dr. Hightower shared a presentation, which is posted online here, highlighting CCSD’s recent success, from student academic performance to retention of its outstanding educators.
In addition to Dr. Hightower’s comments about CCSD’s continuous improvement, both Ms. Martin and Chairman Johnston praised CCSD for its positive impact on economic development. Chairman Johnston, as he did last year, applauded CCSD’s success, describing it as the county’s “No. 1 man-made resource.”
