Georgia Governor Nathan Deal will help cut the ribbon on the Star Academy Program at Berrien Academy later in the month.
He is scheduled to visit the academy Tuesday, Oct. 31, according to an organizational press release.
Berrien Academy Principal Michele Garner said she is eager to welcome Deal and other dignitaries so they can see firsthand what she has already witnessed during the fall semester.
“We have been very successful with our students, and our attendance rates have gone up dramatically,” Garner said. “Our students are very engaged in what they’re doing, very interested. You’re not seeing students who are getting bored. They’re actively participating in their learning, and it’s just awesome to see.”
