The focus of this month’s DeKalb Cultural Exchange (DCE) meeting will be a clarion call for volunteerism, said Rob and Vicki B. Turner, founders of DCE.
Rob Turner is a councilman for the City of Stonecrest and Vicki Turner is a DeKalb County School Board member.
The meeting will be held in collaboration with the DeKalb Branch NAACP on Aug. 10, 9 a.m., on the campus of Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church/House of Hope, 4650 Flat Shoals Parkway, Decatur.
“We will acknowledge schools in South DeKalb that have benefited from having volunteers on site. The NAACP will acknowledge volunteers with the most hours over the last school year,” the Turners said in a news release.
Principals from the DeKalb County School District will share how volunteers have helped with successful student outcomes. School leaders also will share news concerning the first days of school and discuss ways in which the community can engage this new school year.
The breakfast meeting is free to attend.
