"Heart and Soul of Georgia Bus Tour" greeted by GCPS students










Schools are the hub of vibrant and successful communities around Gwinnett County, so it's fitting that students from the Central Gwinnett Cluster were invited to welcome visitors to one such community during the recent "Heart and Soul of Georgia Bus Tour."

Sponsored by the Georgia Cities Foundation and the Georgia Municipal Association, the tour showcases downtowns and their revitalization projects, highlighting the efforts of Georgia's cities to create downtowns where people can live, work, and play. Lawrenceville was one of nine cities included in the tour of the North Metro-Atlanta region.

Students from Cedar Hill Elementary, Lawrenceville Elementary, Margaret Winn Holt Elementary, and J. E. Richards Middle schools were on hand to extend a warm welcome to the participating Georgia officials.
