08/22/17: Fathers and Sons Bond Over Fishing Trip Fishing Trip

Helping build brighter futures for young men attending Whitesville Road Elementary (WRES) in Troup County has become a reality, thanks in part to Jerome Cofield. Cofield, a Troup County School System Paraprofessional at WRES, launched what he likes to call ‘Empowerment Wednesday’.

Each Wednesday, male students who are in the program wear a red or blue tie or bow tie, white buttoned-down shirt, and khaki pants. The expression, according to Cofield, is to help students understand what proper attire is when they leave their home. The red or blue tie they wear has become a symbol throughout the Troup County community, and within their group, as a sign of respect and esteem.
