Quarterly Membership Breakfast recognizes Educators, PIE Partners

2016 Golden Apple Award winners.

Jackson Chamber held its Quarterly Membership Breakfast on May 20 with its annual Education Recognition program. To show appreciation to our educators and business partners, Golden Apple Awards were presented to chamber business and school Partners in Education (PIE). Dr. Verna Ruffin, Jackson-Madison County School System, and Gary Grisham, The Bank of Jackson, addressed the crowd.

To receive a Golden Apple Award, a business or education partner must do at least 10 activities for their partner or partners. The information must be reported in writing to Shirley Jones prior to the deadline in order for a Golden Apple Award to be given. 

This event was sponsored by The Bank of Jackson, which also handed out a $500 award by random drawing from among Golden Apple school award recipients to Alexander Elementary School. In a random drawing of Golden Apple business award recipients, H & M Company, Inc. received a special promotional package from the Jackson Chamber.

If you would like to become a PIE Partner, this is a great way to volunteer time and resources for the betterment of public education, while demonstrating community involvement. Contact Shirley Jones or call (731) 423-2200.
