Honoring a board member

Friends and family honor Mrs. McCormick at a banquet in Atlanta.

Our eldest board member, the woman who ensured The PEACH Pit had a place to call home, turned 95 on Aug. 18.

As part of the birthday celebration, alumni of the Fort Valley State University Baptist Student Union Gospel Choir gave an impromptu musical tribute.

She was a longtime educator and principal, and headed the FVSU BSU for decades. She’s a world traveler and motivator. She’s a role model for hundreds of former students and anyone who’s fortunate enough to cross her path.

Most importantly for us, she’s a wonderful ambassador for The PEACH Pit, spreading our mission and vision far and wide, whether at the senior citizens center where she volunteers twice a week, at church or at any meeting she attends.

Please help us congratulate Margaret McCormick on turning 95.

Improper training?

Officers of the law are twice as likely to kill themselves as to be killed by someone else but are trained as if the opposite were true. #youfirstdemo #firstresponder #eagala
