Education Celebration

The Rotary Club of Griffin helps sponsor Norcom's Annual Education Celebration. Noncom is a local manufacturer of school supplies, whose president is Rotarian Hal Rahn. Other sponsors include Griffin Wal-Mart, managed by Rotarian Scott Owen.

In the past, the program has offered a Free Store for Teachers opened to all teachers in the Griffin-Spalding County School System. This year, Norcom delivered supplies to all teachers in the school system and Rotarians volunteered to help distribute the supplies. This year, Norcom delivered the supplies to the schools and did not seek volunteers to help with the distribution. This project assists hundreds of students with much needed school supplies. It further helps the teachers, who often pay for supplies for their students out of their own pockets.
