We are grateful for our decades-long partnership with the Coweta County School System, and we are pleased that this short term solution is available.”

Coweta County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Evan Horton, noted, “We are so appreciative of our partners at West Georgia Tech, and of the chance for Atkinson students to finish the year on our local West Georgia Tech College Campus.  This presents yet another opportunity to support Coweta County students by building on a great partnership that has been developed over a number of years.
