The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

The recent announcement that Dr. Judy Holton has resigned as principal of Jenkins County Elementary School is sad news for Jenkins County. Dr. Holton has served the local school system faithfully for the past 22 years, and she will be greatly missed not only on the professional level, but also personally by her many friends in Jenkins County.

I wish Dr. Holton and her family only the best as they begin a new journey in their lives. Don't forget to come back and visit!
