Mr. Cagle has shown unyielding commitment to serving youth, our communities and has provided ultimate leadership in supporting and inspiring Georgians. Specifically, his leadership provided through Georgia's “Healthy Kids Challenge“ and the Georgia College and Career Academy Network have been directly responsible for providing students with access to an environment that best illustrates excellence in college and career academies, as well as healthy and profound lifestyle decisions. The Georgia College and Career Academy Network, a partnership between local community leaders, school systems, and Georgia’s Technical Colleges, provides relevant and rigorous curriculum aimed at preparing students for a highly skilled, 21st-Century economy. Thanks to Lt. Governor Cagle’s leadership, Georgia has 33 college and career academies today with additional academies planned every year. Furthermore, Mr. Cagle's Charter System Initiative and tireless passion for developing future leaders has ignited entire school systems to convert to charter system status, thus placing the focus back to best educate our youth.
Additionally, Mr. Cagle is a true ambassador of Usher's New Look. Through the Georgia House of Representatives Commemoration on March 19, 2015, he implemented an official Resolution celebrating 16 years of service for our organization. We are very thankful for his efforts and honor him for his vision as an Ignitor of Education in the state of Georgia and creating a ripple effect around the world!
