Fulton County Board of Commissioners Chairman John H. Eaves, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, members of the Fulton County School Board, and school administration paused to honor one of the school district's best and brightest today naming it "Jameda Owens Appreciation Day" in Fulton County. Ms. Owens, a social studies teacher at Bear Creek Middle School, had previously been named the district's 2015 Teacher of the Year. She was cited for both honors for her innovative approaches for reaching students at all learning levels.
"I'm blessed to do what I do," said Ms. Owens. "I'm privileged to be a teacher." Initially sponsored by Fulton County Board of Commissioners' Chairman John H. Eaves, the full Board joined with the Chairman in awarding Ms. Owens a Fulton County proclamation for her efforts on behalf of Fulton County School children.
