VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - One South Georgia school is calling on the entire Valdosta-Lowndes community to come show the youth that education matters, and can be fun.
J.L. Newbern Middle School is hosting their first ever Education Day, described as "where the community and knowledge meet."
It's this Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The event organizer says she wants to remind everyone in the community that educating students is a partnership and she hopes this is the first of many Education Day events to come.
"I want it to be a staple here for J.L. Newbern. We want to let people know that we are here. We have a new administration. We have so many great things going on at this school," said Brittany Bell, Teacher and Event Organizer. "We want to make sure that people are constantly reminded that at J.L. Newbern, we have a lot of panther pride and a lot of people who are here to help you."
The event will be at J.L. Newbern on East Park Avenue, and will include free food, music, community partners, and vendors.
