Parents, if you want your child to be more successful in school, become even more involved in their schooling. You can make a real difference for the good of your child. "When parents are involved in their children's educations at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school - and the schools they go to are better" (National Education Association, 2006).
I frequently have the opportunity to travel around the state into different school districts and their high schools and I often receive comments from those principals praising the exemplary status of the Bryan County Schools.

One of Richmond Hill's own, Heather Vaccaro recently signed with Milligan College. During her years here at RHHS, Heather has proven herself to be a superb softball player. I consulted with Heather about Milligan itself, and how she rose to such a distinguished achievement.

As parents we want the best for our children. We want the best opportunities, best schools, and best teachers.

This week I met with Wes Valentine. Mr. Valentine has a long history of teaching art in Richmond Hill.

With the news all abuzz with information about the coming election it's hard not to dwell on political thinking. While I'm fiercely against "blind" politics, siding with any political party or way of thinking simply because the people around you do, politics have always been a point of interest for me. At this stage in my life I don't claim any true political allegiances and certainly have not decided which party best ...
