Sonoraville High School’s Future Business Leaders celebrates American Enterprise Day and Small Business Day by touring local businesses in downtown Calhoun. Suzanne Roland, Director of the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Lorene Potts, member of the DDA toured with the Future Business Leaders of America. The business tour included the following stops: Gordon County Library, Starr Matthews Agency, Country Friends, Harris Arts Center, Jeff Beamer at Edward Jones, Mother Nature’s Eden, Pete’s Music, and Owen’s Security. Local merchants helped prepare our community’s Future Business Leaders by answering many questions, such as green policies regarding recycling and building reuse, and what it takes to be a small business owner in Downtown Calhoun. SHS wishes to thank the tour leaders and the businesses for their hospitality.
Also, as part of American Enterprise Day, Congressman Tom Graves proclaimed American Enterprise Day as part of the city of Calhoun and the community on November 15, 2015.
