Jonesboro Mayor Joy Day is the recipient of a statewide award.
During the annual convention of the Georgia Municipal Association in Savannah last month Day received a Certificate of Achievement from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute. To achieve the certificate Day had to complete at least 72 units of credit in the series of 24 six-unit courses that provide training for elected officials around the state.
GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon called earning the certificate a "significant achievement."
"We commend Mayor Day for this accomplishment and for the dedication she's shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official," Higdon said in a statement.
The Georgia Municipal Training Institute is a cooperative effort between the GMA and the University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government. The GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, research, training and employee benefit and technical consulting services to 500 member cities.
