Special guests and elected officials were on hand to make an exciting announcement at the Brooks County Schools Board of Education meeting on May 11. Senator Russ Goodman, State Representative John LaHood, and retired Senator Ellis Black reported that they were able to secure $100,000 from the Georgia General Assembly for Brooks County Schools. The funding was allotted from the General Assembly to build an agricultural barn on the campus of Brooks County High School. Curt Childers, Brooks County Farm Bureau, Brooks County Commission Chairman Patrick Folsom, and Donnie Warren from the Langdale Foundation were also in attendance at the to show their support for the building of the barn.
