Principal's Advisory Committee Field Trip

Every year, Mr. Long selects representatives from each grade level to serve on the Principal's Advisory Committee to meet periodically and discuss issues and concerns and give feedback. To thank them for their service, Mr. Long took the group to a nice lunch and to Lanier Ford Law Firm, where they were able to learn about many aspects of law, including intellectual property, litigation, real-estate and workers’ compensation. What a great opportunity for career exploration!
