Today marks the final day for school visits this spring as most schools will be finishing up for summer break here soon. You can visit our Facebook page for pictures of visits the spring.The last several weeks have been packed with visiting and discussing cotton with elementary and middle school aged children. Just last week and this week have included visits at Thomson-McDuffie Middle School, Colquitt County 4th graders, Miller County Elementary, Evans County Elementary, Heard Elementary (Bibb County), and Cave Springs Elementary (Floyd County). The total number of students visited this spring was just over 3700. We also were able to send our teaching materials to several other schools (600 students) which we could not attend their event. This brings the total number of students to just over 4300 hundred that learned about Georgia cotton this spring. This is just a tad better than the 3900 kids that learned about cotton last year.
