On November the 6th – 8th twenty-seven students from Turner County Middle School attended the 40th Annual Junior Youth Assembly in Atlanta, Georgia.  At Junior Youth Assembly students got to see first-hand how laws are made in the State of Georgia.  Four of our students served as Senators and twenty-three served as Representatives. All of the students attending JYA wrote and submitted their own bills, but only forty-eight were accepted to be debated by the students. Of the forty-eight bills accepted, nine of them belonged to students from our school.

For most of our students this was the first opportunity that they had ever had to speak in front of more than a few people. They did an excellent job representing their bills and Turner County. The group was accompanied by Vanessa and Bobby Sylvester, Shelley Robinson, Bill Clark and Rene` Hasty. The students who attended the conference were First Row: Elizabeth Velasco, Michael Bryan II, Brady Coffey and Joey Williford, Jacob Burgess Second Row: Chloe Bowden, Macie Rae Furney, Blaykelyn Stephens, Madison McMillian and Colton Sylvester. Third Row: Naqirah Garcia, Alexus Hodge, Tatiyana Holley, Tristin Turner and Zekira Coley. Fourth Row: Chae Thomas, A’Miracle Rhodes, Alex Taylor, Tamera Wright and Na’Khaya Roberson. Fifth Row: Jace Wynn, Nalecia Alford and Chloe Fowler. Sixth Row: Zach Brown, Alexis Callejas, Cierra Boney and Demarrion Wilson.

The students would like to extend a special “Thank you!” to the people and businesses in Turner County who contributed to our cause by participating in our “Tanks for Turner” fundraiser.  Without the incredible support of our community we would not have been able to have as many students participate in this awesome educational experience.

Turner County School System recognizes the Distinguished Service Award Recipients for the month of November  2016, Mr. John West and Ms. Lynn Turner.




John West

Mr. West is a great example of what makes TCES a family. He is focused on providing experiences which engage, excite and enable students to succeed. Counselor, coach and mentor are a few titles that describe him. As grade level chair, he keeps us informed and is genuinely concerned about his teammates. He is supportive and more than willing to step up to any challenge. As a veteran teacher, I can understand the values of a positive attitude and superior work ethic. He has both!  ~Ann Brown

Lynn Turner

Ms. Turner is always willing to do whatever she's asked to do. She doesn't complain or make excuses to get out of doing work. She doesn't sit around idle, she will find something to do for someone if necessary. She works diligently until the task is complete. She wants it done correctly and neatly and will make sure it is done the way I want it done. She is also willing to fill in or cover for someone it they have to leave early. Mrs. Turner is a hard worker. She is always willing to help anyone with no reservations. She is very deserving of this award.  ~Jill Kicklighter
