We are so fortunate to have wonderful members of our community who go above and beyond to support the success and welfare of our students and staff. To show appreciation, Superintendent Dr. Chris McMichael started the Community Member of the Month to recognize these individuals who are making a BOLD difference behind-the-scenes.
We're happy to recognize Joe Vogt as the September 2023 Community Member of the Month. Mr. Vogt has worked with Solvay for more than 40 years and has volunteered his time with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), the YMCA, and as a member of two of our School Governance Teams. He’s been an instrumental advocate for BCSS Work-Based Learning Program, connecting BCSS to local industry, and has led the Barrow County Chamber’s Workforce Development Committee for many years.
Sims Academy CEO and Barrow County School System CTAE Director Dr. Jennifer Wood nominated Mr. Vogt for this recognition because of his extraordinary and mostly behind-the-scenes contribution supporting workforce development and sharing news about our students and programs in the Barrow community. Dr. Wood says Mr. Vogt was a key part in the creation of the Sims Academy of Innovation and Technology.
Thank you, Mr. Vogt, for the important difference you make for the students and staff of BCSS!
