The Georgia School Counselor Association has named Dr. Brent Shropshire a 2016 semi-finalist for School Counselor of the Year for the State of Georgia.

In 2015, Dr. Shropshire was named the Cobb County School District High School Counselor of the Year, which made him eligible to compete for State Counselor of the Year in 2016. He will be recognized and will receive an award at the Georgia School Counselor Association Annual Conference in Macon, during their awards ceremony on Nov. 2, 2016.

“Dr. Shropshire has earned much gratitude for his efforts on behalf of Georgia’s children, who are certainly better off for having been touched by his commitment and dedication to the School Counseling Profession,” said a statement from the Professional Recognition Committee of the Georgia School Counselor Association.

Dr. Shropshire is the lead counselor at North Cobb High School in Kennesaw, the largest high school in the Cobb County School District. He has been a school counselor for 18 years and has worked in the Gwinnett, Fayette and Cobb County school districts over the course of his career. He is the son of the late William Shropshire and JoAnn Shropshire.

What do you think should happen with the Calhoun Police Station?

The current Calhoun Police Station has been found to have harmful mold, asbestos and lead paint within its walls. The City of Calhoun had many options to choose from: rehabbing the current police station to bring it up to health standards; renting a building for the police to use as a station or buying property and building a station. The City Calhoun has dwindled those choices down to: purchasing the Fred's building and property on Curtis Parkway near the Calhoun Primary / Elementary school OR building on land offered to the City of Calhoun free of charge on McDaniel Station Road, across from the future site of the GBI Regional Facility. What do you think the City should do??
