Elbert County Comprehensive High School was selected as one of five Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (GVRA) Capacity Building Pilots to receive a Career Specialist for Transition for their school. In collaboration with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), Division for Special Education Services and Supports, the five pilots invited to participate were Fulton, Elbert, Gainesville City, Henry and Houston County School Systems. Christi Duncan, ECCHS alumni, has been named as the new GVRA Career Specialist for Elbert County. Mrs. Duncan will also be working closely with ECCHS Social Worker Wausheka McClary and CTAE/AP Kim Fuller and with students in the Blue Devil 101 program in providing individual support. We want to extend a big Blue Devil welcome to Mrs. Duncan!
