State FFA President and Vice President Visit ECI FFA


Emanuel County Institute had the honor of hosting two of the FFA state officers on Thursday, September 13, 2018 and shared this event with several other FFA members and agricultural students.  Lauren Sherrod, ECI FFA president and Area 4 Sentinel, welcomed the state officers as well as Georgia Executive Secretary Mr. Ben Lastly to Emanuel County Institute. The two officers in attendance were the State President, Bryce Roland from Perry High School and State Vice President, Dawson Adams from Colquitt County.  

The agricultural students from Ms. Tori Pellerin’s and Mr. John Harrison’s Basic Agriscience courses were able to take advantage of a workshop challenging the students to find the true leader in each student.  The students participated in several fun activities engaging them in discussion and teamwork building skills. FFA is a national youth organization of 653,359 student members with a mission of making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

Chris Kearson, Dwayne Tabor, Jordan Dorene Holmes, Ali Clark Jordan Wins State in High Jump

ECI’s Jordan Win State in High Jump

Gregory Jordan, son of Kathy and Greg Jordan, took first place in high jump at the State Track and Field Championship held in May.  He won with a high jump of 6’6”. Greg broke ECI’s, and consequently his own personal best, record of last year’s 6’2”. This is a feat that we are both proud and amazed by considering that ECI has no track facilities for practicing, especially in the field events.  It should also be of note that last year Greg qualified to go to State in the high jump, but did not get to compete due to tearing his ACL the week before in an AAU basketball game. He is coached by Ali Clark and spent a good deal of his own practice time co-coaching our uprising star Ms. Emma Mason (who subsequently tied for 4th place in the state for girls’ high jump).  Gregory will be attending Swainsboro Tech this Fall while he works on his CDL.


ECI PTO Recruitment Meeting 8.20.2018

Emanuel County Institute will be hosting a recruitment meeting on August 20 at 6 pm in the ECI cafeteria for parents that are willing to be actively involved in the ECI Parent Teacher Organization. This is an opportunity for parents to take part in their students’ educational experience by being involved in the decision-making process at ECI. As parent leaders, your responsibility and your part of contributing to a wonderful school life experience is rewarding but more importantly, helpful to the students of our school.

End-of-year report card procedure

We're nearing the end! Parents, if you would like your student's report card mailed to your home, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope to school. Report cards will also be available for pick-up in the front office by June 1st. If your student has financial obligations, they must be cleared before their report card is released.

Honorary Golden Radish Winners Emanuel County School System Receives Golden Radish Award for Farm to School Accomplishments

Georgia’s Departments of Agriculture, Education and Public Health, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and Georgia Organics came together at the historic Georgia Railroad Freight Depot to celebrate over 40 percent of Georgia school districts with outstanding farm to school programs. Seventy-five school districts, serving more than one million students in Georgia, are now participating in farm to school.  These districts served more than 97 million school meals with local food items during the 2016-17 school year.


Emanuel County School System was recognized at the Honorary level for their accomplishments during the 2016-17 school year, including:

·         Hosting two "Farm Days", where the School Nutrition Department presented “Where in Georgia Are Our School Foods Grown" to primary and elementary students. Students took home seeds to take home to start gardens with. Students also talked to farmers, visited barns where they could pet goats, horses, cows and rabbits, sat on tractors and listened to high school FFA students explain how they work. Altamaha EMC joined by teaching students how they run power to all of the farms in the county.

SHS Fake News

This afternoon the Emanuel County Board of Education learned that a fake news site - breakingnews247.com - has posted a story that is circulating through social media stating a potential spreading of HIV by an 11th grade student at one of our schools. This website is a known prank website and should not be taken as real. “It is disappointing that someone would create a fake news story such as the one traveling around on social media,” stated school superintendent Dr. Kevin A. Judy. “Although probably intended to be funny, it unfortunately took away from our focus on students to address this issue that many believe to be true. I have contacted the provider and they readily agreed to remove the page due to the negative impact to the school and community. We appreciate their quick response to our concern.” The superintendent has been in touch with the Emanuel County Health Department to confirm that there is not a health risk to our students. Although this story is fake, the Emanuel County Nurse Manager, Jennifer Harrison, stated that anyone in the community that ever feels that they need to be tested can go the Emanuel County Health Department without an appointment time. The Emanuel County Schools take the safety and well-being of all of our students as a top priority of the school district.
