Representatives from UGA held a 'listening session' at Cairo High School for the 'Archway Program' earlier tonight (10/6).

The partnership will bring resources to Cairo and the surrounding area so the community can grow.

Explains program director Mel Garber, "We can have eight active programs in the state, and so we work with eight communities at a time ... and we settled on Grady County. Great leadership [in the Cairo community], a lot of interest in moving the community forward."

Adds Cairo Mayor Richard VanLandingham, "I'm really excited about the group of people I've met, as far as their abilities and talents for leadership."

Tonight's (10/6) session was an open forum, designed for people who live in the area to give their input.

The Archway committee will take the comments and compile them into areas of concern which will then be solved.
