Fort Gordon units recognized for their volunteer work
Some troops at Fort Gordon have accepted a very important mission for the next year, one that could have an impact on the lives of thousands of nearby residents and potentially alter lives forever.
Their mission? Volunteering with students at schools in Columbia and Richmond counties.
Units from Fort Gordon were recognized Friday for their service with the Partners in Education Adopt-a-School program during the 2017-18 school year and entered into agreements to continue their partnerships with schools in the two counties. The program began last school year after the school systems and the military installation expressed interest in working together.
