During this visit, Representative Douglas agreed to partner with South Atlanta High’s CTI students by assisting them in their career pursuit in public service. He also agreed to allow our students to become Pages for him during the 2014 Legislative Session.  He vowed to do whatever it takes to assist our students in achieving their dreams. In an addition note, Phyllis R. Hayden-Johnson was named New CTI Coordinator of the Year for the entire state of Georgia. Congratulations!
