Amicalola EMC awards over $47,000 to local teachers

67 local teachers recently got a surprise classroom visit. Amicalola EMC directors and staff members made the rounds surprising winning teachers with a big check at 34 private and public schools in Amicalola EMC’s service area throughout Cherokee, Dawson, Gilmer, Lumpkin and Pickens counties.
This was the sixth year for the Bright Ideas program, which has awarded almost $250,000 to area teachers since 2010. Created to reward teachers who develop innovative classroom projects that otherwise would not receive funding, the program is funded in compliance with Georgia’s unclaimed property laws.
Amicalola EMC congratulates all the winning teachers and we look forward to rewarding more bright ideas in the future.
