Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves joined Rob Maynard on the WCLK Public Affairs Block to talk about his annual Back-To-School Kickoff Event.

From Commissioner Eaves' Press Release:  Let’s help our kids prepare for classroom success before the summer ends!  To help young people begin another school year on a successful note, Fulton County Commission Chairman John H. Eaves will host a Back-To-School Kickoff at Atlanta Technical College.  Barbers will be on hand to provide haircuts to students.  School supplies will also be provided to young people to make sure they are ready to learn Day One of the upcoming academic year.
