Rob and Vickie B. Turner will host the Cultural Exchange Community Breakfast meeting on Saturday, May 12, 9 a.m., at The Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church/House of Hope, 4650 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur.
Rob Turner represents Stonecrest City Council’s District 2 and his wife, Vickie Turner, represents District 5 on the DeKalb School Board.
“Our focus this month will be on our students. The breakfast will be sponsored by President Dr. Gary McGaha of Atlanta Metropolitan College. The college is excited to announce some new programs for potential students,” said Vickie Turner. “Application fees will be waived and staff will be on site to discuss two- and four-year degree programs; financial aid and admission requirements. This collaboration is being done with our students in mind. As many are approaching a milestone in their lives, by graduating high school, we wanted to bring viable options to their doorstep.”
The breakfast also will staff from DeKalb Workforce Development, who will share summer job opportunities that DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond has instituted for DeKalb students.
“We also will have someone present to discuss a GED program for our students desiring to get more information and enroll in the program,” said Vickie Turner.
The Turners said candidates running for office also will be introduced.
