Educators are Essential 2019 
Last year was a huge success and the Chamber Education Committee is gearing up to do it again! The CLCC, Education Committee of the CLCC, and community sponsors team up to recognize and thank every k-12 educator in Lowndes County. Attendees are welcomed by the Education Committee and community members and are treated to discounts at local businesses and may even win a prize at one of our pep rallies! Our goal is to truly make the educators see how thankful the community is for their hard work and dedication to the children in our community.
