                                                             had a wonderful career

                                            presented with gift cards. One Boston
                                            student left with a new Apple IPOD. The

                                       PARTNER PERKS!!
                                  By partnering with a school, your business will be able to
                                  broaden the learning experience of students throughout
                                  the county. Your business and staff volunteers can share
                                  with students “real life” business situations, which will help
                                  them prepare to be leaders of tomorrow. Many participant’s
                                  report a positive effect on the morale of staff members who
                                  are involved in the program! Outstanding partners are also
                                  recognized at the Chamber’s May Good Morning Cherokee
                                  Breakfast, and awarded certificates to acknowledge their
                                  commitment during school PTA meetings.
