At the Handprint Unveiling Ceremony on Oct. 6, the Cobb Chamber will uncover the handprints of the Cobb County and Marietta City system-wide Teachers of the Year with a crowd of students, colleagues, and members of the community. The public is invited to attend this event at The Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre in historic Marietta Square, as the two honored teachers will leave their handprint legacy on the Teacher Walk of Honor.

The breakfast and pep rally are described below:

Continuing the salute to education, the breakfast and pep rally on Tuesday, Oct. 25 honors all Cobb County, Marietta City and post-secondary Teachers of the Year at Roswell Street Baptist Church.
