On behalf of the Board of Supervisors and the all those associated with the ACCE Program we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the support of all the sponsors, volunteers, churches, community members, runners, County and School Board staff, and other supporters of the Muddy ACCE Race. With 614 people running, ACCE students, police, fire and EMS volunteers, county and school personnel, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church youth groups, business sponsors, members of the media, civic clubs, and spectators, there were thousands of people that came out to show their support of this very exciting program. Education is our top priority and the key to a successful future for our community. The secondary benefit of the program is the improvement of our workforce which will have immediate impacts to our economy. This is just another example of the giving nature of the Giles Community, particularly where our kids are concerned.
Ricky McCoy – Chairman, Giles County Board of Supervisors
