Gaylesville, Cherokee County High, Centre Middle and Cherokee County Career & Tech Schools were presented with their Energy Star Certifications during the regular meeting of the Cherokee County Board of Education on Tuesday. Rusty Jacoway made the presentation and gave high praise to all the administrators, faculty and staff members at each school across the county for their dedication in making sure that each campus is doing their part to help save as much on energy as possible. With these four certifications, all seven Cherokee County Schools are now officially Energy Star Rated and Certified.
