06/14/19: Students Go From School to Work School 2 Work

Kamren Stargill, recent LaGrange High School graduate walked into a meeting a few weeks ago that changed the trajectory of his post graduate plans. “I didn’t know anything about School 2 Work. I just walked into the room at school and heard somebody talking about job interviews. It sounded like a good opportunity so I asked about it.”
 

This week, Caterpillar and Mauser held signing days for students they hired out of school like Stargill and Nunn. Four students began orientation at Caterpillar while two started their careers at Mauser. Dommonique Macklin, Section Manager of Assembly Building at Caterpillar, was on site two weeks ago interviewing over 20 students for positions with the organization. Some of the qualities she said stood out for her were attendance, work ethic, and responding under pressure.

Scott Malone, president of LaGrange Development Authority said, “The whole purpose is to have the teachers that are instructing the children know what the opportunities are in business. They can then share this new knowledge in the classroom and in their student learning. Helping the teacher see what the manufacturing environment is today is absolutely critical to everything we are doing for economic development.”

Notice of Millage Rate Hearings - TCSS is NOT Requesting an Increase in 2019 Millage Rates

The Troup County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2019 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 2.87 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the   Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on June 24, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.

Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on July 1, 2019 at 10:00 A.M.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 18.850 mills, an increase of 0.526 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.324 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $25.25 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $26.30.
