At this unique luncheon, the Chamber recognizes Clinton’s outstanding teachers who have received special awards during the past year, our STAR Students and Teachers, and the Clinton Chamber Youth Leadership (CCYL) Scholarship winners. Many city leaders attend to show our community’s continued support of Clinton’s excellent educational system.
For our 2019 Education Appreciation Luncheon, the Chamber is welcoming guests and honorees at a new event location: the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel will be providing the meal for this special event, so everyone will have the chance to see and taste this great new venue while celebrating our fantastic students and teachers. The Chamber will also welcome guest speaker Barbie Ferguson, Deputy Director of Mississippi Professional Educators, at this wonderful event.
As this is a catered event, reservations are required to ensure enough food for guests. In light of this, the Chamber kindly requests attendees register by noon on April 2nd so that we can provide ample lunch for everyone.
