Q2 2021 Double I Award Winner

The Double I award is presented to a business that Invests in and Improves its location or organization, thus improving the quality of life in Fulton County and surrounding areas.

Rochester Community Schools School Board

The Rochester Community Schools (RCS) School Board has been nominated for and won the Chamber’s “Double I” award this quarter. The Double I award is presented to a business or organization that Invests in their business and Improves the quality of life in Fulton County. The RCS School Board, past and present, was nominated for their efforts in restructuring their auditorium for educational purposes and community use, building additional class space, erecting a new baseball press box, new greenhouse and new track facility, and redoing the middle school gym. The nomination mentions, “Although the greenhouse and track were covered by insurance due to storm damage, it was the foresight of the board to have comprehensive insurance as well as be able to add some of our own dollars to build bigger and better after the storm. This was all done without raising taxes for our community; a true testament to our current board as well as past boards.”
