Approximately 150 Atlanta business and civic leaders fanned out to public schools across the city recently to participate in our first-ever Project for a Day (formerly Principal for a Day) event.
Professionals from Coca-Cola, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Georgia-Pacific, IBM, Junior Achievement, Project GRAD Atlanta, Target, Tyler Perry Studios, UPS and other organizations spent the morning of October 23 participating in a hands-on, student-focused activity on nearly every APS school campus. Afterward, business professionals and community partners joined an audience of more than 600 – including principals and partnership coordinators – at the Omni Hotel for the Atlanta Partners for Education Celebratory Awards Luncheon.
Mayor Kasim Reed, Superintendent Davis and APS students recognized partners and schools for their outstanding partnership programs. WSB-TV anchor Jovita Moore served as the emcee.
