Community meetings were held periodically throughout the design and construction of the JCEC to keep the local community up-to-date on its progress. The links below provide summaries of the various meetings.
Students from River Eves Elementary School took one last field trip before the end of the school year for a special proclamation at the Fulton County Board of Commissioners’ (BOC) regular meeting. Ms. Ginny Vose’s entire 5th grade class attended the session. All the students gathered around the lectern and their three classmates as they read their essays on the Chattahoochee River and the environment. The essays written by Ty Douglass, Abby Troughton, and Dorothy Cannella on the Chattahoochee River and the environment were originally part of an essay contest for the Johns Creek Environmental Campus Cornerstone Ceremony. Commission Chairman John Eaves and District 3 Commissioner Lynne Riley who participated in the ceremony were so impressed with the students’ insights, they invited them to the BOC meeting for the special proclamation.
Douglass, Troughton, and Cannella once again read their essays – this time to a much larger audience – and were met with the same positive response. Following the reading, Commissioner Riley read the BOC’s proclamation designating May 16, 2007 as River Eves Elementary School Appreciation Day.
