  • Jerome Maples is a senior at West Gadsden High School. He’s the student school board member for the Gadsden County School District.

    And he’s gunning for your job, Gov. Crist.

    Earlier this month, Maples served as a messenger at the Capitol, working with Rep. Alan Williams. He was one of 12 students working there during what Maples called a very hectic week.

    “It was a great experience. It was a way to see the other side of politics and to see the Capitol, which is a very busy place,” he said.

  • Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottcamp paid a visit to Chattahoochee Elementary School last Wednesday, and found himself a little caught off-guard.

    Kottcamp was on hand to present two microscopes to the school, along with dictionaries. After handing out the dictionaries, he sat down next to two little girls, and asked them what word they’d like to look up.

    “Specious,” was the reply. Kottcamp was visibly surprised, but encouraged the young ladies to look up the word and read him the meaning.

  • Gadsden County School District Teacher of the Year Randall Austin firmly believes in his mantra: Every day, every child, every chance.

    And it’s that attitude that caused him to want to become a teacher in the first place.

    Now in his second year of teaching at East Gadsden High School, Austin is a graduate of Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Ga., where he earned a degree in economics. After college, he ran a hauling company and learned how to run a landfill.
