Last week Leadership Savannah enjoyed its first complete program focused on the county’s education and public health systems. Roger Moss, President of the Savannah Chatham County Public School System, welcomed the class.
The class visited Beach High School, where they toured the medical clinic staffed by high school students and the Curtis V. Cooper mobile health clinic. The class heard a panel discussion featuring Dr. Rena Douse with the J. C. Lewis Health Center, Dr. Albert Grandy with Curtis V. Cooper Primary Health Center, Melanie Willoughby with St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System, and other medical partners.
To learn more about Education in Chatham County, the class traveled to Woodville Thompkins, where the culinary art students prepared lunch for the group. Following lunch, the class toured the facility to see the different pathways available at Thompkins. Peter Ulrich of Tybee Maritime Academy and Mary Ann Hogan of St. Vincent’s Academy also informed the group about the county’s charter schools and private education choices.
The day ended with a team-building social hour and individual and class photo portraits at Ardsley Station by Shannon Phillips, Class of 2022, and Abshire Publishing.
