Encouraging educational excellence has long been a focus of the Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce. Modeled loosely after the STAR Program, the Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students in the middle school grades who have maintained all A’s on their report cards throughout the school year. Students are treated to a luncheon away from school and receive a gift sponsored by a Chamber-member business, professional or organization.
The 2017 Rising Star program was held at Roberts’ Chapel at the State Offices South Tift Campus on May 5, 2017. We could not offer this wonderful program without our event sponsors Oglethorpe Power, Central Georgia EMC, and Southern Rivers Energy. We are also grateful to our various business owners that support the student(s) and teacher(s) through a sponsorship.
