    GJCP recently held an awards ceremony where our own First Lady Deborah Bryant was Emcee/Master of Ceremonies at Fairview Inn.  This prestigious event is held each year as a means of honoring individuals who are representatives of the excellent teachers we have throughout Hinds, Rankin and Madison counties for their achievements in the classroom. 

    The Awards Program, now in its 22nd year, is designed to elevate the teaching profession by recognizing and awarding teachers in the Metro area for quality and excellence in education, thus demonstrating the business community’s appreciation for the contribution that teachers bring to the workforce.  The luncheon was sponsored by First Commercial Bank, Jackson Area Federal Credit Union and Quest Fitness Club. Our programs were sponsored by Atmos Energy.

    We are seeking Sponsors & Volunteers to assist with this rewarding event. Please email Niki Carr Lowery, Vice President of Special Events & Projects, at nlowery@greaterjacksonpartnership.com for volunteer or sponsorship information.
