Members of the Chamber of Commerce met on Thursday for the month’s Chamber Connect luncheon. With food catered by Kitchen South, the lunch had two guest speakers for the day. First to take to the microphone was Keenan Adams with Metro Power. After giving a brief overview of the company’s goal and history, Adams primarily spoke about the ways Metro Power has been involved in the community. He recalled a quote from one of the company founders: “We are in the people business, electrical work is just the vehicle to those people.” Some of the community programs Metro is involved in that Adams mentioned included Bearcat Workforce Now, their apprenticeship program with Southern Regional Technical College, and the Chamber’s Youth Leadership and Leadership Decatur County programs. Adams also mentioned how Metro Power is involved with BASF in Attapulgus.
Following Adams, GCA headmaster Sean Johnson spoke, giving a brief rundown of the school’s history and faith-based curriculum, before discussing the school’s recent expansion. This included the school’s new sports complex, the new east campus, as well as the recently proposed expansions to the main campus.
Following Johnson’s speech, drawings for door prizes were held, and the meeting was adjourned.
