The club sponsors an annual luncheon for all new teachers in the Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCSS). The new teachers have the opportunity to meet Rotarians and enjoy lunch during their orientation week. This welcome provides a great first impression of our school system and community. This year, we welcomed approximately 150 new teachers and heard words of encouragement and motivation from Mr. Syntel Brown, a high school teacher in East Point and new member elected of GSCSS Board of Education. Mr. Brown is a graduate of Griffin High School and drew his comments from his classroom experiences and those of his family, including his mother and aunts.
