Sen. Greg Kirk and Rep. Ed Rynders Endorse Bonds for Worth County Schools

ATLANTA (February 3, 2016) | Sen. Greg Kirk (R – Americus) and Rep. Ed Rynders (R – Albany) commend Gov. Nathan Deal for his allocation of $1.6 million in the FY2017 General Budget for renovations and new construction to Worth County Schools. Worth County Middle School will receive $820,000, while Worth County Primary School will receive $850,000.

“Gov. Nathan Deal is doing a tremendous service to both the children and educators of Worth County with the allocation of this bond revenue,” said Sen. Greg Kirk. “The revenue from these bonds will be used to help enhance student learning with new classrooms and increased space in some of the county’s oldest schools. I would like to thank the Worth County delegation and Gov. Deal for their diligent work and cooperation when determining how this funding should be spent to better student learning in our county.”

”I appreciate Gov. Deal and his commitment to education,” said Rep. Rynders. “Any time state funds are used for worthy projects, it helps the property owners and releases the pressure on local SPLOST dollars. Simply put, it’s a win-win.”

Worth County School District has nearly 4,000 students enrolled in K-12 classrooms. Worth County is located east of Albany and is home to the city of Sylvester, and is the veritable “Peanut Capital of the World.”
