Whitesburg Elementary School held a “Celebration of Innovation” event on Thursday, September 21, to dedicate the new Opal and Alton McWhorter Music Center.

The innovative equipment also provides growth for children in areas, such as coordination, concentration and problem-solving, creativity and self-expression, as well as pride in achievement. The Opal and Alton McWhorter Music Center is the only one of its kind in the state of Georgia.

Governor Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal attended the celebration, along with Congressman Drew Ferguson, Representatives Lynn Smith, Randy Nix, and Jay Collins, State School Superintendent Richard Woods, Whitesburg Mayor, Ronnie Pate, Carroll County Board Members, local public officials and representatives from the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and the McWhorter family.
