Education Votes!

It's almost time for the next round of elections - also known as a day off for us! Last month, SCEA hosted a meet the candidate for House District 40. We invited Macon (pictured above) and Dekalb County Education Associations to join us. We met with Terry Lynn Weaver and Cleveland Bain. Both candidates had good things to say about education. 

You know us! We also had to eat. Thanks Duran - he provided the great snacks and CHOCOLATE.
